2018 - PI World - Barcelona - Industrial IT
The Biggest Question in Digital Transformation: Who Owns the Data?
Data is the new oil. That means that (1) it takes quite a bit of effort to process it into something useful (2) it’s not worth anything unless you can sell it or at least share it with someone else and (3) there are going to be loud and long legal disputes over who owns it and controls it.
In this interactive session, attendees, PI customers and analysts will debate how data ownership will impact our business. Some of the questions include:
• Who really owns the data? Equipment makers? Customers? Both?
• Will blockchain or private industry clouds become the standard for exchanging and data
• What new business models will emerge and how will this impact capital financing and the cloud business.
• What role will insurance companies and banks play in this transition?
