Ireland is one of best places in the world to do business. The pro-business environment, the highly skilled and educated population and our geographical position as a gateway to Europe continues to make Ireland one of the most favoured global locations for FDI.
The Irish Government actively supports FDI in Ireland and provides state funded grants to businesses looking to establish a presence here. The Industrial Development Authority (“IDA”) is the Government’s FDI agency and provides a wide range of supports (financial, administrative and otherwise).
We maintain strong links with the IDA, other State legal and regulatory agencies and the service provider community in Ireland. This enables us to streamline the process of gathering information and project planning which you and your business may require.

The William Fry ‘Europe for Big Data‘ report, produced in association with Forbes Insights, analyses the key factors driving big data strategies based on a survey of 200 C-suite executives in leading companies around the world. The report highlights the business challenges and opportunities Big Data offer that are now a key part of decision making across most industries and sectors, and can no longer be viewed as a technology issue.
International companies are increasingly deciding to locate their Big Data decision making, operations and strategies for each geographic region in that region. For example, in relation to Europe, the survey shows that 80% of international organisations already have a European business presence. Couple this fact with exponential growth in Big Data operations and it follows that a growing number of companies are or should be looking to open or expand data operations in Europe.
