LET'S TURN BIG DATA INTO BIG PROGRESS
Big data is too easily associated with Big Brother and data controls which infringe freedoms when it is in fact a force for progress. Its impact goes far beyond the tech sector. The sheer quantity and quality of data are having a revolutionary impact on innovation and value creation in many sectors.
Analysis of increasing data flows helps define improvements, promote informed decision-making and enhance existing business models. Big data has led to major technological advances which are radically transforming our daily lives and contributing to our well-being. Predictive medicine is certainly one of the best examples.
Undertakings that collect and make available the data produced by major players in Big Data (through sensors, the internet, etc).
E.g. a data centre for storing data.
Software companies that make it possible to analyse this data.
E.g. algorithms for managing resources (energy, transportation, etc.), on a city-wide scale - Smart Cities.
Non-technology companies that use this data in their day-to-day business in order to obtain a competitive advantage.
E.g. A company in the healthcare sector using Big Data (genome sequencing, etc.).
