I think winners and losers will be a result of this discussion. Companies like facebook and Google really depend on this type of information for revenue.

It will surely be an interesting journey in the next few years as the issues get debated and sorted out. Getting empolyees and customers to "trust that you won't misuse or lose that data," may be a challenge after our recent spate of hacked data and emails.

Will any of your experts address the role of encryption in securing both data in transit and at rest? This seems to be one of the most challenging (and expensive) pieces of the puzzles for organizations trying to lock it all down.

I think there are many parts to this. there is how data is gathered ( did you have anopt in or was it just taken), who owns it and how it is used. When hackers go into political sites and try to influenec an election there is one set of issues. But what happens when a merketer access your microphone or camera in your computer or phone? When the director of the FBI recommends you put a piece of tape over your comera when not in use, you can bet it is a real issue. Can Google look for key words inyoru e-mail and then sell the data to companies who want to sell you things? I think ther will be many changes in this field before we hit on the right balance of privacy and data for the common good.

The business-analytics disconnect remains a hurdle for adoption of data-driven decision making. Maybe it's time for the analytics team to hit the road and show employees what data can do for them.
You've heard all about the data science talent gap that McKinsey cited in 2011, but there's a lot more -- including new information -- that you need to know about McKinsey's ongoing research. Learn more Thursday on All Analytics Radio.
Still standing by a prediction that big data as a buzzword will die as we turn out focus to the analytics, not the scale of the data.
Reflecting on 2016; it was the year that so many analytics elements came together.
After being largely undefined for a few years the role of Chief Data Officer may finally be taking shape, as illustrated in a survey of federal agencies.
