While the business world is starting to understand that data has value, it can still be hard to demonstrate that value in a way that organizations and citizens understand. This keynote talk from two industry thought leaders presents several stories showing how public and private organizations have clearly demonstrated the value of data in helping people. Stories from both public and private sponsored data analytics show how data play can play an impactful role in organizational strategy.
