One of the distinguishing features of recent years has been the exponential growth in the aggregation of machine-readable information, or digital data, over the Internet. This has been accompanied by an expansion of big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and new business models (digital platforms). With more devices accessing the Internet, an ever-increasing number of people using digital services, and more value chains being digitally connected, the role of digital data and technologies is set to expand further. As a result, access to data and the ability to transform data into digital intelligence has become crucial for the competitiveness of companies.
