The BSA (The Software Alliance), a global organisation of the software industry, has issued the report “What’s the Big Deal With Data?”, discussing the transformative potential of Big Data in fields such as transport, energy, health, agriculture and education. The report asks how to best use data in order to come to innovative solutions and how to avoid breaching privacy rights. The report particularly identifies weather forecasting, smart urban planning, energy-saving buildings and GPS systems for traffic data as chances for innovation stemming from data analysis.
