Renowned publication, The Economist, describes data as being "to this century what oil was to the last one: a driver of growth and change." Given the integral part that data is sure to play in digital transformation across global industries and societies, it's time to level-set on what exactly constitutes this rapidly evolving "Economy of Data." How does it stand to influence us and shape the way we approach important decisions?
In this three-part episode of the BI Report, we will explore the core elements of the Data Economy (Data Production & Gathering, Data Organization & Preparation, Data Analysis & Exchange) in an effort to better understand the role data has to play in the marketplace and how we can harness it.

- What are the various sources of business data and how do we categorize them?
- How is the IoT landscape expanding and what does this mean when it comes to sourcing data from disparate entities?
- What are the challenges organizations face when it comes to gathering data and creating a data pipeline for analytics?
