Determining Economic Predicted Value of Data (EPvD) Series

Bill Schmarzo By Bill Schmarzo CTO, Dell EMC Services (aka “Dean of Big Data”) September 20, 2017

I’ve gotten several requests to share all of my work and research behind the Economic Value of Data research work that I did with the University of San Francisco. Given my lazy nature, I thought it would just be easier to create a blog, where I can place all my current and future research, and then just point folks to that blog.

 

So here are the blogs and articles that lead up to the University of San Francisco “Economic Value of Economics” research paper “Applying Economic Concepts to Big Data to Determine the Financial Value of the Organization’s Data and Analytics.” And there will be more research, blogs and articles coming (working on one right now), so I’ll send out notices whenever we update the blog site. Thanks!
