Doug Laney | Data & Analytics Innovation Fellow | West Monroe / Author of Infonomics
Keynote Speaker

Doug Laney is a best-selling author and recognized authority on data and analytics strategy. He advises senior IT, business and data leaders on data monetization and valuation, data management and governance, external data strategies, analytics best practices, and establishing data and analytics organizations. Doug’s book, Infonomics: How to Monetize, Manage, and Measure Information for Competitive Advantage, was selected by CIO Magazine as the “Must-Read Book of the Year” and a “Top 5 Books for Business Leaders and Tech Innovators.”

Session Title: Infonomics: The New Economics of Information
Session Abstract: Increasingly, IT and business executives talk about data as one of their most important assets. But few behave as if it is. Executives report to the board on the health of their workforce, their financials, their customers, and their partnerships, but rarely the health of their data assets. And corporations typically exhibit greater discipline in managing and accounting for their office furniture than their data. In this discussion, Mr. Laney will share insights from his best-selling book, Infonomics, about how organizations can actually measure and manage data as an actual enterprise asset, and how to capitalize upon data’s unique economic qualities. And he will share real-world stories from his recent book, Data Juice, about how organizations are squeezing value from data.
