We live more and more in a world of activities generated by a "data-driven economy": the production, distribution and use of digital information of all kinds has become a major force in economic growth. Mobile broadband, of increasing use also in developing countries, has led to technological and social transformation. Large amounts of data, together with the associated systems of memory, manipulation and analysis, are changing the way businesses and governments make their decisions. But this economic sector remains relatively unknown, unregulated and unexploited.
