Secure, governed data access for every type of group

Data Republic's Senate technology can help power your next open data event, allowing you to easily and economically provision analytical workspaces with private or commercial datasets for large groups for controlled access periods.

Senate for Industry Reform

Data Republic’s Senate platform allows organizations to collaborate in a pooled data environment, safely contributing your data to industry reform efforts.

Become a thought leader in the transformation of your industry by breaking down the barriers imposed by the traditional challenges of sharing or pooling of datasets. Securely and safely contribute data to a pooled environment to be developed into the catalyst for compelling change in your industry.

Senate for Social Good

Data Republic’s Senate platform allows organizations to host open data events, transforming and enhancing decision-making through collaborative business analytics and rich datasets.

Inspire thought leadership by facilitating collaboration between students, scholars, practitioners and business, bringing together stakeholders within the data industry, including scholars, practitioners, students and organisations who are interested in, and driven by, the challenge of data.

Senate for Education

Data projects in an educational environment have traditionally been limited to anonymized, public datasets with little derivable value because of access and governance concerns tied to personally identifiable or commercial data.

Using Data Republic's Senate platform, educational and research groups can partner with commercial organizations to provide compelling datasets that lead to useful analytical outcomes.

Create benefits from an open data event...

Generate insights

  • Give teams the opportunity to generate compelling insights from interesting aggregates of data
  • Expand the skillsets of your teams by giving them more varied datasets to analyze
  • Get insights on your own data in a trusted environment

Create interesting results

  • Open data can lead to analytical results otherwise unavailable in a closed data environment
  • Extend the value of your datasets without surrendering your security or control

…will lead to significant benefits in creating new data insights

Secure and private by design

  • Bank grade security for all data with full encryption both in transit and at rest, keeping your data secure at all times
  • Personal information never leaves the databank and raw data never leaves the platform

Easy, fast and cost-effective

  • Time-consuming legal issues are minimized
  • The capital expense of system development, legal and operational use has already been covered, leaving participation as an operating expense

Transparent and enabling

  • All participants are clear on how their data is being used
  • Lets specialists in organizations do what they are good at and use their analytical skills on great data
  • Easily links to other systems to enable operationalization of findings

Managing your data with Senate

The Senate platform makes it simple for organisations to manage the ‘shades of grey’ around what data should be shared with whom by providing permitted-use governance controls.
Data warehouse with SQL access

You’ll be able to query your datasets via SQL, building new views and tables, and saving your queries for re-use all from within the Senate platform.

Work with your datasets just as you would if they were stored in your local environment but with the added governed security of Senate.

Web based management console

Via the management console, you’ll also be able to edit the tables associated with your databases, load new data, and set relevant meta descriptions for your datasets.

All of your management needs centralized in one easy interface.

Supports unstructured data types

In addition to your traditional datasets, any and all of your relevant project documents can be loaded as Files, keeping all of your documentation centralized and available for projects.

Ensure proper documentation is always available for all of your projects.

Package data tables for analysis

Onboard users and kick off data projects quickly by packaging guides directly to your datasets, reduce risk by including only the documents people need to the package.

Save time as the packages can be duplicated and reused.


Securely store and access your PII

The security of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) would otherwise be a major hurdle to any type of open data or analytical project, but Data Republic can help alleviate that concern as well as provide matching services for those projects that require second party data.

The Senate platform segregates the handling of PII to a secondary repository called Databank. Working in partnership with Data Republic, Databank provides the underlying identity data matching platform and Data Republic provides the exchange workflow technology and dedicated workspaces for participants to analyse and uncover insights from associated attribute data. Keeping these two types of information, personal information and attribute data, completely separate helps to ensure that individuals cannot be re-identified by any other party without your approval.

On-demand analytical environments driving results


The Senate platform provides on-demand Analytics as a Service environments complete with all of the analytical tools your team needs and alleviates the technical and infrastructure limitations you typically experience trying to kick off analytical projects



Securely-governed environments

Our analytical workspaces are fully confined envirornments used to allow approved people (companies, organisations and staff) to work on shared data in a secure environment to prevent unauthorised uses of your data. You have full audit and version control over all activity in the workspace, and the Senate platform provides you with a governance workflow for approving data egress.

Complete analytical toolsets

Working on our analytical environments won't impact the efficiency of your data analyst teams. All of their standard analytical tools can be loaded in to the environment along with any supplementary datasets or pre-configured analytical algorithms. We support integrations with major BI and data analytics tools and can preload your workspace with licensed versions of selected tools based on your project needs and working requirements.

Simple egress and integration

After your analysis is done, we offer a robust set of egress controls and integrations straight from the workspaces into approved CRM, BI and DMP solutions. We also offer APIs for any custom egress solutions that you'd like to build to support the deployment of your data projects, including the development of custom applications that run in your own technology stack and utilize the Senate platform as a supporting service layer.

Data Republic has built a platform specifically designed to allow you complete control over your analytical environments and data. Let us show you how it works and walk you through the options for a deployment that would meet your needs.
