In this time when the government aligns its actions toward economic recovery, big data plays a vital role in developing innovations specifically designed to support local communities in promoting their personal yield/products/services in a way that is empowering and accessible. That is why DAP, DOST, ISU, and the LGU of Cauayan convenes their ideas to encourage experts and people of the City to help utilize data sets to transform them into innovations to establish a digital tool to educate, empower communities, align technological accessibility, equipment affordability, and easy way to uphold business profitability. The call to spearhead data sets will be a great pitch for the LGU to help its business-minded communities recover from the pandemic, showcase its business potential, and adopt digital infrastructures for sustainable economic performance.
