Commit2Data is a research and innovation program working to stimulate the use of (big) data in public-private partnerships in the Netherlands.
In collaboration with TNO and Innovalor, I was asked to help visualize the key parts of a major white paper they were writing on the future of big data. It focused on four developing trends in data use and organization, providing companies and government with ideas on how they could use data to add value to both business and society at large.
The center of the poster shows an exciting world in which data sharing brings helpful innovation to companies, consumers, and society. To the four corners of this field, we delve deeper into the four trends that will mobilize the data economy.
By sharing data not just within the domains they are collected in, but outside of them in related fields as well, new business models and innovative solutions emerge.
Instead of letting the market (US) or the state (China) decide what happens with our data, a European approach could distinguish itself by putting the individual in charge. They choose who uses their data and for what purposes.
It is likely that future consumers, governments, and supply chain partners will demand higher levels of transparency when it comes to the origin, sustainability, or labor circumstances behind their products. Offering insight into these aspects could enable better supervision and stimulate more ethical practices.
By connecting different data sources and looking at the big picture, predictions could be made in a variety of areas, from required maintenance to medical red flags, to catch problems before they arise. The result for the individual could be more peace of mind and higher quality, personalized service.
The poster was used to promote the white paper in several places online. The final publication ended up receiving some extra illustrative work to accompany the texts. Thanks to Frank Westenberg from BrandNewSomething for the beautiful layout and design of the text. Click below to view the white paper:
This was another dream assignment to work on, thanks to the knowledgeable, kind and enthusiastic client and different experts involved! Many thanks to ECP and Commit2Data for the continued trust and fun collaboration.
