Modernization of European Official Statistics through Big Data methodologies and the best practices: ESS Big Data Event, is planned in Rome (Italy) for 31 March-1 April 2014.
The Event will be organised by Eurostat with the support of DevStat (as a leader) in consortium with ISTAT, Dialogic, Verbivis and the Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz Hochschule.
In many sectors of society, Big Data is playing an increasingly important role. In the private sector, Big Data offers many companies the opportunity to increase their efficiency, for example by giving greater insight into customer demand. While there does not seem to be one single definition of what Big Data is (or is not) there seems to be a consensus that Big Data may be of real interest for Official Statistics.
