Our story

Our story

D8A believes that data innovation is the next wave in the data space. D8A is an initiative by data experts with over 20 years of experience. We know what works and what doesn’t. By combining and sharing our expertise, we challenge the status quo and drive progress. We do this together with partners to build an ecosystem. By directing towards data innovations, we capitalize upon cumulative expertise. We do not deliver what companies ask, we deliver what companies need.

Why now?

During the last decade, the focus of data has been on hygiene factors. Now is the time to create further value out of the investments of the previous years. At the same time, the data space has become increasingly complex. Becoming data driven is easier said than done nowadays. Companies need to understand that data innovations require a full spectrum of understanding & insights of data types, value types, connections to software, AI and hardware solutions and market research. Existing and upcoming legislation, ethics and trusted data can be both an enabler and a blocker for innovation. D8A will share insights, guidance, How-To’s and approaches to enable your innovations.
