Global Future Council on Data Policy

Council mission and objectives

To unlock the value of data, organizations, whether in the public, private or third sector, must examine the ways in which they store, integrate and process data. Furthermore, there is untapped potential in data, that if harnessed, can have implications for helping to solve societies' biggest problems or creating new economic value. Data architecture and systems design can help solve for this issue, going beyond simple core principles into the technical execution of logical processes to ensure functionality and innovation. The Global Future Council on Data Policy will examine data architecture models that promulgate an appropriate balance of creativity, responsible use and efficiency.
