How data is transforming the publishing sector: Möbius Project at MWC23Mobile World Capital Barcelona
Experts from the book and media industries discussed the role of data in their sectors at Mobile World Capital
Data can drastically transform any business, and the publishing and media sectors aren’t an exception. Möbius, an EU-funded project modernising the traditional book experience, recently gathered experts in a round table at Mobile World Congress to discuss the advantages, current practices, challenges, and new opportunities surrounding data in these industries.
Specialists from MVB, IN2, La Vanguardia and El Diario.es, made the round table possible, held at booth H6B31, at Mobile World Congress’s main Auditorium, in Barcelona, Spain. Moderated by Simona de Rosa, a Möbius partner and PhD Researcher at DEN Institute, the panel discussed why data can drastically transform business and how stakeholders can expect to take advantage of new technologies and innovation.
In particular, the panel focused on the advantages of data within the publishing and media industries, how data supports and helps these sectors, and the role of data visualisation in improving people’s awareness and understanding of business and societal aspects.
“From my point of view, what matters is how we really translate the data and introduce it in the publishing business value chains. Möbius can actually provide useful tools and technologies to go through data and use it.”Simona De Rosa emphasized.
Jan Goetze, Head of Product Management at VLB & Metabooks, MVB; Alexandru Stan, Innovation Manager at IN2; Laura Aragó, Data Journalist at La Vanguardia; and Victòria Oliveres, Data and Visualization Journalist at El Diario.es, joined the roundtable. You can watch it below:
