Global Data Insights aims to be a useful source of global content (curated and original) on the key insights, changes, opportunities & threats resulting from important industry data trends, specifically in the realms of Data Strategy, xTech, Open Banking and Consumer Permissioned (or Contributed) Data, in support of the development of sustainable organizational strategies and plans.

If we are successful in our efforts, leaders will leverage the content as part of their Data Strategy development and planning processes (as well others). 

The scope of our content will cover a broad array of industries worldwide, including financial services (banking, lending), insurance, healthcare, education, transportation, loyalty, retail, non-profit and government services. The reason, is that there is more common than uncommon to these domains, when it pertains to data strategy and market differentiation across xTech domains. 

We will do out best to curate (and create) useful and insightful content. The content rights and expressed views are those of the original authors unless otherwise noted. Please repost as you see fit.
