On the evening of 5th July, Spectrum, the technology sector executive search firm, Silverpeak, the mid-market tech-focused corporate finance advisor and Squire Patton Boggs the global law firm, co-hosted a Data Leadership Dinner.

The key points of debate and discussion were:

  • What makes a business a data business?
  • The origins of businesses that are now data businesses – what problem is being solved
  • What is the value of data?
  • The role of AI
  • The necessity for data to deliver actionable insights
  • The 3 layers of data
  • The role of the edge to cut out noise
  • The residual value of data
  • How data businesses are valued, and the challenges associated with valuing data businesses – including data ownership
