This chapter identifies the cross-sectorial requirements for big data research necessary to define a research roadmap. The aim of the roadmap is to maximize and sustain the impact of big data technologies and applications in different industrial sectors by identifying and driving opportunities in Europe. This chapter details the process used to consolidate the big data requirements from different sectors into a single roadmap. The results comprise a prioritized set of cross-sector requirements that were used to define the technology policy, business, and society roadmaps together with action recommendations. This chapter presents a summarized description of the cross-sectorial consolidated requirements. It discusses each of the high-level and sub-level requirements together with the associated challenges that need to be tackled. Finally, the chapter concludes with a prioritization of the cross-sectorial requirements based on their expected impacts.
