A methodology and a tool that implements this methodology are developed using R to construct a web site that allows a lay user to consult statistical information owned by an institution and stored in a cloud database. This methodology was developed followin g the open - data philosophy and was implemented with open -source software using R as a key element. The proposed methodology was applied successfully to develop a tool to manage the data of the Centre d’Estudis d’Opinió, but it can be applied to another sta tistical center to enable open access to its data. The system is deployed on a cloud infrastructure that scales according to demand, implementing a 24/7 solution. A user (or a computer program) can access the information on the website using the R language as a communication channel or using a programming application interface. Additionally, in the R language, a common framework can be defined to structure the various processes involved in any statistical operation.
