Ireland: a land of opportunity
With 96% of senior business executives having a favourable view of Ireland as a data-related investment destination, it should be no surprise that the country has quickly become a world leader for big data, the Internet of Things, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and fintech, amongst other areas.
Ireland is already home to many of the world’s leading international companies across all industries and sectors. In addition to placing second in Forbes’ report, the country also ranks first in the world for investment incentives, and first for international competitiveness in the Eurozone, according to the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook 2016.
Many large brands are proud to call Ireland their home, including Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft and Twitter. In fact, according to the Irish Development Authority and Enterprise Ireland, the country is home to:
– Nine out of the top 10 global software companies.
– All of the top 10 global ICT companies.
– All the top 10 ‘born on the Internet’ companies…and the list goes on.
There are many factors that position Europe favourably as a data centre destination. Host in Ireland, an industry-led initiative specifically developed to generate awareness of the country’s assets, boils Ireland’s attributes down to five key points:
Policy: pro-business approach to policy issues.
