The second one is to promote industrial innovation development, to cultivate emerging business forms, and to help economic transformation. Develop application of big data in industry, emerging industries, agriculture and rural areas; promote integration between big data development and science & technology innovation; promote basic research and core technology development; form big data product system; and improve big data industry chain. The third one is to strengthen security, to improve management level, and to promote healthy development. Make big data security system perfect and strengthen security support.

Guizhou Built the First Big Data Comprehensive Pilot Zone in China

In September 18th of 2015, Guizhou province launched work to build the first big data comprehensive pilot zone in China, tried to develop it become new height gathering data application, comprehensive demonstrative area, industrial development gathering area, first choice of entrepreneurship & innovation and pilot are of policy innovation via three to five years. Surrounding this goal, Guizhou province will mainly build “three main systems”, and mainly establish “seven big platforms” as well as implement “ten main projects”.

"Three Main Systems” means to build pilot policy & regulation system, cross-over integrated industry ecosystem, security system with prevention and control.

"Seven Big Platforms” means to build big data demonstrative platform, big data collection platform, big data application platform, big data transaction platform, big data finance service platform, big data communication platform and big data entrepreneurship & innovation platform.

"Ten Main Projects” means to implement data resource collection, governmental data sharing and opening, comprehensively manage demonstration improvement, big data preferential project, big data three main business forms cultivation project, traditional industry transformation & upgrading, information infrastructure improvement, talent cultivation & introduce project, big data security project and big data regional pilot planning development project.

Besides that, Guizhou province will explore innovative modes of big data application via building comprehensive pilot zones, cultivate new method of big data, develop market pilot of data transaction, encourage data exchange between upper stream and downstream of industry chain, regulate transaction behaviors of data resources and promote new business forms.

Experts from National Development and Reform Commission indicated that building big data comprehensive pilot area is not a simply thing like building industry park, data center or cloud platform; but should fully depend on current infrastructure resources, use current resources, make good schedule and get rid of wasting space resource and loss.
