In today’s increasingly diverse and dynamic world, challenging the status quo is critical to ensuring your organization remains relevant. At Hack for Sweden, government bodies and industry leaders will discuss how embracing open data can fuel change and ignite innovation. Here, Emily Svärd, Business Developer at Nordic Morning, highlights the importance of these discussions for people, business and society, and explains how you can get involved.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret.

The vast majority of organizations today know why they should prioritize embracing data. They understand that the intelligent use of data will make their solutions and services better, operations more efficient, and help future-proof their business.

And yet, some still struggle to actually use data. Instead, many organizations end up rarely thinking outside the box. They often arrive at the same conclusions and do what they’ve always done. In the worst cases time, resources, and money are wasted creating services that no one wants. Sometimes solutions are even created to problems that don’t really exist.

Of course, some organizations do a fantastic job creating new solutions and services. But the challenges I’ve outlined above do exist.

Does any of this sound familiar? Well, these are risks that are extremely common and in danger of infecting every company, business, and government body. Thankfully, there is another way.

Fostering a framework for innovation
