Big Data can help streamline a company’s production or improve our welfare services. But we cannot make the most of Big Data until we have learned to harness the vast amount of information. This is the conclusion of a new international White Paper based on input from 130 researchers, business professionals and governmental officials. The paper has been sent to the European Commission. The initiators hope that their call-to-action will give rise to new research and funding activities.
The World Summit on Big Data and Organization Design was initiated by the Organizational Design Community (ODC) and co-sponsored by IBM, the Interdisciplinary Center for Organizational Architecture (ICOA) at Aarhus University (Denmark), and Université Panthéon-Sorbonne (Paris).
The World Summit was held at the Université Panthéon-Sorbonne on May 16-17, 2013 and included 11 keynote and distinguished speakers as well as 130 participants from 26 countries. The speakers and participants represented academia, business, and government.
The White Paper is especially addressed to legislators, policy makers and government agencies in the 26 countries, but will also be available to the public through ICOA’s website (link).
