Data monetization is not a new buzzword, but has mainly been applied to selling raw data. However, data monetization has now evolved to largely mean improving efficiency and developing new revenue streams. This interesting news came to us from Fierce Big Data in their article, “Data monetization is focus of new conference.”

Outsell’s DataMoney Conference will be held February 1-2, 2017, at the InterContinental New York Times Square Hotel. This conference is designed for chief executives, chief data officers, chief revenue officers, chief analytics officers, and chief content officers hailing from the Fortune 1000.

By providing a framework for data monetization, it helps attendees build a data partner network with conference peers to share insights and learn from one another.

The conference was just announced and program details are not finalized. As it’s a brand new event with interesting topics, it will be worth watching to see how the program develops, and maybe penciling those dates on your calendar.
