You are cordially invited to participate in the “Who owns Big Data?” seminar, which will take place in Hong Kong on 25 February 2016, organized by the Information and Communication Technology Business Council of the European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong.
Big Data refers to the use of technology to assess massive amounts of data in real time to analyze, sense, and track information of machines, things, and people. The datafication of connected objects and devises creates a gigantic information system. Economic research suggests that the global market for big data and Internet of Things will reach 1.9 trillion USD in 2020. Data held by corporations, governments and other large organizations are considered a valuable asset with enormous potential of monetization. It can also give companies a competitive advantage, through using data analytics to identify general trends and correlations in consumer decision-making and buying behaviour.
In the US 90 per cent of consumers believe that companies own data they have gathered, whereas in Europe only 30 per cent consider data a corporate asset. How do business and consumers treat big data and its potential in Asia?
