2019 Community Workshop – From idea to reality

June 20, 2019


The Community hosted its 9th annual workshop over two and a half days, from 17-19 June 2019, when more than 90 participants from 40 different organisations came together for the official launch, in open source, the .Stat Suite, a native SDMX modular set of components that aims to progressively cover the full data lifecycle (GSBPM: Design; Collect; Process; Analyse; Disseminate).

This high level of interest demonstrates the greater demand and increased importance of the collaboration on statistical activities between statistical organisations, both at national and international levels, which is central to the Community and its strategy.

The first two and a half days, as with the previous workshops (held in March 2011March 2012April 2013April 2014March 2015April 2016April 2017 and April 2018), were open sessions and the OECD extended the invitation to interested groups and organisations who have been considering using .Stat Suite for their own organisation, or interested in becoming part of and contributing to the open source community, and who share similar objectives.

Day 1 (17 June), took place at the OECD Conference Centre in Boulogne, France, with days 2 and 3 (18-19 June) taking place at Station F, the largest start-up hub in the world and the center for the French Government push to make France the global leader in tech and innovation.
