The Mexican government defines the Open Data in its transparency portal as "Groups of public data available from the Federal Government which, by applicable provisions, are not considered as reserved or confidential and are accessible to individuals to be reused as desired".
The answer, thanks to the OKFN, can be seen in this chart
This shows that Mexico has a good score as regards the availability of the national budget, election results, availability of national statistics and maps covering the entire territory. However, it fails in the category of availability of information on public transportation, zip codes, government expense reports, company registries and national legislation and regulations. The overall result is a fail grade, although it nearly passes.
However, it should be highlighted that in recent years the government has made very significant efforts and achieved a series of key milestones to understand the present and future of Open Data in Mexico:
20-09-2011: Mexico joined the Alliance for Open Government. The purpose of this initiative was to obtain specific commitments from the participating governments.
End of 2012: The Mexican government's commitment to open data was considered obtained, given the progress made up to that time and the firm commitment to continue along the same lines
24-08-2013: The first unconference was held on open data and urban mobility in the Laboratory for the City of Mexico D.F., organized by OpenDataMX, within the framework of the ConectaDF initiative. Several challenges were posed with regard to urban mobility and the use of open data, to be solved by development teams.
2014-10-27: The Mexican government increased its commitment to transparency by establishing a series of milestones to be met between 2014 and 2016. Some of these are already in progress and will be evaluated on 27-10-2014
In sum, although there is much more work to be done with regard to open data in Mexico, we can conclude that the government institutions are making a significant effort to increase the release of ever-more accurate open data for the consumption of its citizens.
Open banking is driving the development of new apps that are integrated into company platforms, all in an effort to offer banking services to customers. Thanks to APIs, any banking operation, such as opening an account, can be done without the need to exit an application.
Open banking has changed the financial paradigm as we have known it so far. The widespread use of new digital platforms, connected devices and technology consumers has led to a boom in business opportunities for every company, many of which are already leveraging their benefits as much as possible.
The digital transformation has not been fully implemented in the automotive sector yet, at least not as quickly as in other distribution sectors. APIs can be this sector's best ally by speeding up its digitization, especially in those areas involving the purchasing process.
