Recently, AAIS hosted a webinar on the “Democratization of Data.” Defined simply, this is allowing open, free-flowing access to data with decentralized gatekeepers, smart contracts which require explicit consent, and a reduction in barriers to entry or exit. During the webinar, Neil Pravin Dias from BizDynamics presented the ways that data democratization can ultimately benefit a company’s results – whether that’s relationships, revenue, or other key metrics – and how to breakdown data to get to your desired target. Here, AAIS VP of Data Solutions Ruturaj Waghmode provides additional color on ways AAIS facilitates and leads the way on democratization of data.

Ransomware is a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid and can target both individuals and businesses. The U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform shared that “in 2020, ransomware attacks on both public and private institutions in the U.S cost an estimated $19.5 billion. … in the first six months of 2021, financial institutions reported $590 million in ransomware-related transactions. Current trends indicate that ransomware transactions in 2021 alone will exceed the previous 10 years combined.”

Increasing the Value of Data

Everyone has probably heard the cliché “Data is an Asset.” But how do we break it down pragmatically into an actionable backlog and apply some “data-driven metrics” toward attributing and increasing the value of data.

It’s a fascinating and challenging paradigm – to increase the value of data. Like many other assets, the value is typically not intrinsic; it must be harnessed. It requires a process of extraction, enrichment, polishing, and packaging. Even then, the value realization is not obvious or guaranteed, until the consumer engages with it. Think of diamonds. They go through an extensive process from rock to finished product, and still only possess value once purchased by a consumer at a defined market rate.
