Study Overview

The aim of this project is to conduct a roadmap study in the area of Intelligent Data Analytics. The consortium, consisting of max.recall information systems GmbH and the Institute of
Software Technology and Interactive Systems of the Vienna University of Technology is pursuing a three-step approach to elicit, on the one hand, the needs in the area in the short, medium and long-term, and the other hand, to create a recommendation and action plan corresponding to those needs.

An international Advisory Board consisting of experts from industry and research has been established. The role of the Advisory Board is primarily to validate the recommendations by taking into account international developments and trends in science, research and business.

Phase 1

Based on a detailed survey of the state-of-the-art in the areas of search and analysis, semantic processing, visualization and cognitive systems, the data analytics area will be
categorized and thematically crystalized.

In parallel to the thematic exploration of the area, the initial phase of the study will also create a landscape of the leading national players in research and industry, as well as their skill set in order to establish an Austrian competence landscape in data analytics.

Phase 2

In the second phase, the data collection phase, we plan three workshops with national research and technology experts from academia and industry. The perspective of the industry and business communities will also be collected using structured interviews with representatives of multinational companies active in Austria, SMEs and selected experts
from the national umbrella organizations and special interest groups.

Phase 3

The information, perspectives and needs elicited in the first two phases will be, in the third phase, consolidated, analysed and summarized in the study report. This report will contain the conclusions inferred from the data and a set of recommendations as well as short-, medium and long-term measures to strengthen innovation in the data analytics field in Austria.
