This week, techUK is exploring the current and future importance of data to driving forward the UK’s digital economy and society. Data is all around us and has become an integral part of all of our daily lives. Looking ahead, the next wave of the UK's digital evolution will be driven by big data, data analytics, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, AI and the rise of the smart city. In this very near future data will have a fundamentally pivotal role to play. Not only in driving the UK's productivity and economic growth but also by becoming the fuel that will fire a new wave of digital maturity, growth and trust, and confidence in the digital economy. For this vision of the UK's digital future to be fully realised there is still work to be done today to address concerns regarding data privacy, trust and security and to ensure a regulatory and legal framework is in place that can support the future development and maturity of the UK's digital data driven economy and enable the UK to realise it's digital aspirations.
Throughout this week, techUK is bringing you news, views and insights from the technology sector on the value and importance of data to our digital future and why data matters to the UK. We will also be discussing the importance addressing issues including the importance of having an appropriate data protection legal framework in place, what the changes to the rules on international data transfers could mean and the importance of data security to building greater trust and confidence in a data driven economy.

This will include live tweets from techUK first ever Big Data in Action Roadshow, taking place in London tomorrow. We will also be looking ahead to the future of data in the UK ahead of techUK’s Great Data Frontiers conference being held on the 26 April.
