Big data

A recent report written on behalf of the Norwegian government highlights the potential societal benefits for Norway in using big data. In particular, it shows that benefits can be represented by the improvement of the efficiency of decision-making processes and of the quality and timeliness of decisions and by giving actors the opportunity to react more quickly to deviations from normal situations. The handling of environmental disasters, planning of transport, security of society and increased business development and innovation are mentioned as concrete examples.
