According to some estimates, “Big Data” has the potential to create $19 trillion in social and economic value over the next 10 years. Big data, which is now available in ever bigger quantities, increasing frequencies, and is generated from a variety of sources, is likely to become a critical driver of competition, productivity growth, and innovation. According to one study, big data is the “next frontier in innovation and competition”. However, as firms look forward to creating value by transforming large-volume information into knowledge and valuable insights, several challenges related to data sharing and privacy, data security, intellectual property, and liability have emerged. This panel brings together experts from academia and practice to discuss how firms can overcome challenges related to their ownership of big data and big data assets to make better decisions, drive innovation, and create value.
