RESUMO:

Open Government Data (OGD) are seen as a way to promote transparency and provide information to the population by opening data related to various government sectors. Citizens, by making use of applications developed with this type of data, may obtain knowledge about a certain public sphere; and the government may promote the necessary transparency and make improvements in their agencies by using feedback from citizens who use these applications. However, the creation and success of projects that use open government data certainly depends on the developers, who are able to extract, process and analyze these information as well as on the quality of the data that is made available. This study investigates the perspective of developers who use Brazilian OGD for developing applications that aim to promote greater transparency to citizens. Through semi-structured interviews with twelve developers, this study reports what motivates these developers to use OGD, as well as the difficulties faced by them in this process. We also report a set of recommendations taken from our empirical study, in which developers suggest how to improve the development process with Brazilian OGD. Preliminary results indicate that the main reason to make use of open government data is related to the encouragement of transparency for the population. Among the difficulties, they point to the unsatisfactory quality of Brazilian OGD, which are often presented as inconsistent, outdated and/or incomplete. The second phase of this research provides a case study with projects that make use of OGD, aiming to better understand how the development process of these projects takes place.
