Industry Leadership Day – Leveraging the Shared Data Economy

October 13, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The shared data economy driven by open data, big data, and technology such as blockchain, will fundamentally change business models and the way management and boards guide and execute plans.

Opportunities are significant, but what are the risks? Do you have the knowledge and skills to ensure business strategies are successfully executed?

On October 13, the QUT Graduate School of Business will run an ‘Industry Leadership Day’ devoted to this highly relevant trend in business. We will aim to more clearly define:

– What the shared data economy means
– How leading businesses are looking to leverage the trend
– The technology driving data models such as “Blockchain”
– The new management and governance challenges it presents
– The Commercial Implications of a shared data business model and the rise of Strategic Alliances
