A Look into the Impact and Forecast of the European Data Economy


European CommissionAs part of the European policy strategy for the Digital Single Market, investing in ICT infrastructures and technologies (Cloud computing, Big Data) is one of the key strategies. For that reason, Directorate-General for Communications, Networks, Content and Technology has commissioned IDC and Open Evidence to draft a study on the European market data which has recently been published (02.05.2017). The report presents in detail the results of the third and final round of measurement of the European Data Market Monitoring Tool and serves as a tool for a better understanding of the overall value of the impact of the data economy on the EU GDP for the 2013-2016 period. The report also explores - with an interesting three case scenario hypothesis - the extent to which by 2020 Europe will be able to reap the benefits of the data market to its fullest.
