Collaborative Data Ecosystems: Vision to Trust


From traditional data exchange and monetization to modern data sharing and co-creation, data ecosystems are integral to the new “experience economy”. Whether in the public or the private sector, turning those ecosystems into tangible value for organizations and end-users demands a solid foundation.

Access to the right data is instrumental for the success of modern services and applications. However, most often, the data you own is insufficient, and the data you need is in someone else’s hands.

How do you identify and prioritize data opportunities and remove barriers preventing you from using the data you need? What is best practice for forming the right partnerships, incentivizing data sharing, and managing governance and security across your entire data ecosystem? Or staying on top of data legislation and being an influencer for change? Our Collaborative Data Ecosystems offers a solution.

Through informed strategy, design, technology, and data science expertise, we imagine opportunities for sharing and co-creating with data, in both private and public sectors. From new products, services, and experiences for customers and citizens, to augmented insights informing your organization, we create value from data ecosystems that are financially sustainable, ethical, and socially responsible.

That’s not all. We can also act as a strategic liaison to identify and facilitate winning partnerships, champion advocacy programs, and represent your voice for new legislation and change.

“From vision to actual design, from technology to data sharing models and secure operations along the value chain, we support our clients to become masters of their data ecosystems.”

“The EU’s Data Governance Act has renewed the drive for governmental initiatives aiming to empower citizens, businesses, and organizations through data. The EU data strategy is alive and meaningful to all of us in the different roles we play in our data ecosystems. The Member States’ open data programs are among the pillars that this transformation builds upon.”

“We are moving towards a common European data space where data re-use – whether in the open or in controlled ecosystems – is enabled and governed to be compliant, secure, and viable. In that way we can collaborate and innovate data-informed and tech-enhanced solutions for global and local challenges. We can support a fair and prosperous Europe empowered by informed and courageous citizens.”
