Democratisation of the use of
data is a game changer.

Empowering people
So we can take better decissions
!

Data is not a force unto itself
Data does not create value by itself. The value
has to be created by the society.
!

Data is not perfect
Datasets are generated, selected, analysed
and corrected for particular purposes.
!

Data does not speak for itself
Data requires further research and analysis in
order to make sense of it.
!

Data is not power
Power happens when you are able to do things.
Data empower people to take better decisions.
!

People is not yet ready for data
Data can be an immensely powerful asset, if
used in the right way.
!

We don’t want data
to be the new oil
We better react quickly and
democratize the use of it.
