A secure data sharing platform


Symphony is an open and secure platform for data sharing that allows the integration of datasets and its preparation. The platform is mainly addressed to public entities for the secure sharing of data in an open environment by leveraging the existing knowledge in data ingestion, data pre-processing and data processing.

In a secure and unified way, Symphony allows data sharing among different actors using a technique named Data Slicing. Data Slicing allows the creation of virtual data sets specifics for each user.

Existing open data portals give access to public data published by different institutions, agencies or other bodies. However, these portals do not allow the integration of new heterogeneous data sets provided by users in order to augment the available public data.

Between 2016 and 2020, the market size is expected to increase by 36.9%, to a value of 75.7 bn EUR in 2020, including inflation corrections. For the period 2016-2020, the cumulative direct market size is estimated at 325 bn EUR.
