Q. Why do you think digital data is an asset to today’s economy?
Digital data is not just the “asset” to today’s economy; it is today’s economy. Whenever you need to create a new vaccine, find alternative energies, or build new physical infrastructure, gaining actionable data is the goal of any research and development initiative.
When using existing data, you will create even more data. Any new data that gets reused and creates additional economic growth. Thus, there is an endless loop where data is continuously at the center of all growth. Today’s extensive adoption of AI is the perfect example to illustrate this. Like any growing ecosystem, the ever-increasing volume of data needs to be adequately managed and protected. Companies that are agile in deploying data management and protection strategies simply have an edge on the competition.
