BSA Welcomes Ambitious Objectives of UK National Data Strategy

BRUSSELS – December 7, 2020 – In comments submitted today on the UK National Data Strategy, BSA | The Software Alliance welcomes the UK’s forward-looking efforts to build a modern, data-driven economy.

“This review process could not be timelier as it is being developed amid response efforts to the COVID-19 crisis and coincides with Brexit. The UK National Data Strategy includes the right set of objectives to fully leverage the economic and social potential of data – to help meet immediate challenges raised by the pandemic, support short-term recovery, and enable long-term growth and prosperity,” said Isabelle Roccia, Senior Manager, Policy – EMEA at BSA. “Whether it is enhancing access to government data, boosting the efficiency of organizations through data-driven innovation, or contributing to a future-proof privacy landscape that allows data to flow, software is at the center of the UK National Data Strategy. BSA looks forward to ongoing engagement with the UK Government and sharing our deep industry expertise to help advance these goals.”
