Setting a new course for data-driven innovation

The German Cabinet today approved the German government’s data strategy. Prof. Claus Oetter, Managing Director of the VDMA Software and Digitalization Association and Head of the Informatics Department, explains: “The German government has made an important decision with its data strategy. This will make a future-oriented data policy for Germany possible. The task now is to put concrete measures in place as quickly as possible. These must support the further development of the data economy and, in doing so, create a framework for concrete business models that has not yet emerged to the necessary extent.
At the same time, companies should be given the freedom to consistently exploit today’s information technology opportunities. We don’t need the long-running major projects of 20 years ago that cost a lot of time and money when, for example, the use of artificial intelligence can achieve the desired goals much more quickly and cost-effectively. The administration has a lot of catching up to do in terms of digitization, so experts from the business world who know and master the state of the art must be involved at the earliest possible stage. The VDMA and its member companies are happy to help.”
