As businesses across industries and sectors continue to become more digitally-enabled, the need for data which adds value and helps in making high-quality decisions is becoming paramount. It is this highly structured and organized data which comprises of data assets, and it is these assets which are becoming a prized property for businesses which have the aspirations to go big and go global in the future.
Various sectors are anyway witnessing a change and becoming data asset-driven, and with the gamut of digital transformation currently seeing no bounds owed to COVID-19, one can only expect disruptions in this space across more sectors in the future, including the sectors which are human capital-intensive.
Regardless, there remain plenty of questions in this uncharted space – because there does happen to be more going on than what meets the eye. What even are these assets? Are they just good data, after all? What sort of decisions can a business make with such data? Where does one even begin to integrate data assets in a business?
To answer these questions – and then some more, we invited a special guest on the latest episode of our podcast series Out Of The Pod, and that gentleman is Mr. Abhishek Bali – who is the Founder/CEO at Zigram, a data asset-management startup which has been ranked as one of the Top 10 startups in India in 2020 by LinkedIn. Given his experience as an entrepreneur in this space, Abhishek brings his learnings and insights to help us understand the complex (or easy) nature of this space, how it adds value to businesses, what is the potential of the market, and more.
