Utilisation of data and information

The amount of data on the Internet is constantly increasing, for example on the use of digital services and a variety of devices and equipment.

Digitalisation is not only about developing different kinds of technological applications or new services but also about using them in a large scale.

Open data and continuously improving ways to use mass data provide substantial opportunities for businesses and the whole society. The availability of public information is important for innovations, the development of services, and transparency of society.

The aim is that publicly funded data material be available to people, businesses and other organisations. Companies also have significant data resources. If those resources were shared, it would be possible to further enhance the development of applications and services based on data resources.

One of the measures of the Government key project, Building a growth environment for digital business operations, is more efficient utilisation of big data. The project focuses on promoting digitalisation in the business sector.
