The City stores large amounts of data electronically in many different information systems. Often created independently of each other, data is stored in different formats making the sharing of data across systems very difficult. Having different data formats obstructs the ability of the City divisions, agencies and corporations to perform consistent reporting and analysis required for making operating decisions.

Establishing uniform data standards at the City, its agencies and corporations would reduce conflicting data formats, improve the efficiency and effectiveness of data analysis and reporting, and possibly reduce the number of data stores containing the same data.
