About this talk
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?
