Big data is more than big talks. It is one the most powerful drivers of change and the best opportunity for Europe to sustain economic development and growth. The Data Market in Europe increasingly leverages data-driven innovation, enabled by Big Data technologies, and acts as a powerful value generator constituting a real benefit for Europe’s economy as a whole. To capture this value, IDC and Open Evidence have defined and measured the data economy in five main areas: workers, companies, value of the market, skills and citizens. The figures are now in and you will get a very first insight during the webinar!

Join the webinar and learn how Europe is performing in this area.
