It discusses efforts to enhance trust in the digital economy, focusing on digital security, privacy and consumer protection. It also reviews policies to promote digital innovation and examines the policy implications of emerging business models in key sectors.

Fostering the digital transformation of the brazilian economy

Digital transformation is reshaping established markets and creating new ones. Successful business models make innovative use of data and data analytics to create value, enhancing the efficiency of production processes, transforming data into new services or establishing entirely new markets (OECD, 2015a). Emerging technologies that enhance the availability and usability of data, including smart sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT), are significantly expanding the scope for data-driven business models (OECD, 2017a). In many cases, data services are integrated into existing products and value chains, creating new economies of scope (OECD, 2019a).
