What is Data Monetization?
The concept of data monetization refers to the process of extracting, cleaning and analyzing the millions of data generated within a company, with the purpose of obtaining a benefit or economic value. This value can range from using the information to create performance indicators of the company’s own business and use them to optimize processes and make better strategic decisions, use it as input in the creation of other products or services, market it to third parties, share it with business partners, among others.
Why is it so relevant for companies?
Thanks to the accelerated advance of technology and the development of data science, there are more and more tools and methodologies available to obtain data from company information systems, such as servers, transactional platforms, operating systems, software programs, among others. Now any company can extract its own data from its systems, clean them, validate them, analyze them and extract value from them.
