Using open data in your reports

Rational BI comes with a broad selection of open data that has been published on by universities, governments, municipalities, NGOs, charitable organizations and many others.

You can use this data to build reports, understand patterns, benchmark your business and practice your data science skills.

Accuracy and completeness

The system will attempt to provide the data in the same way it was published and does not evaluate it or check if it is correct. Take a look at the dataset information before deciding to use any data. The system will attempt to provide correct attributions and links whenever possible, and you'll want to check the source before deciding to trust it.

Licensing restrictions

Open data is available to all users of the Rational BI system. Each dataset has unique licensing and usage restrictions. Make sure to read about each dataset you use and make sure to comply with applicable licenses.
