In part 1 of this podcast series on data as an asset, several KPMG executives discussed why enterprises are starting to more aggressively use data, and the four data principles that digital leaders are embracing to transform their enterprise’s business strategy around data.

Part 2 delves deeper into the “village” businesses need – meaning the people, and the layers of technology, collaboration, and cultural change – to unlock the power of data to generate truly useful actionable insights.

During this podcast, Bob Parr, KPMG Advisory’s chief data officer, Matteo Colombo, a principal in KPMG’s data and analytics practice, and Pedro Calado, a director in KPMG’s financial services data practice, sat down with Steve Bates to discuss:

  • Why enterprises need to shift data curation – the process of taking raw data and transforming it into information – from IT or a centralized function to the business
  • Why organizations are adopting signal repositories to help them understand changes in the marketplace, in customer behavior, and in the workforce
  • The tremendous technological changes – think architecture, APIs, business applications, systems of intelligence AI, etc. – that come into play when using data as an asset.
