What Do You Do With Millions of Gigabytes? Ask McKinsey!

Consulting Roundtable

October 25, 2012: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

With petabytes of data being gathered in real time from social networks and corporate systems, the next winners will be those who can effectively mine all the data to improve specific industries like healthcare, banking or advertising. Analyzing large data sets - so called Big Data - will become a key basis of competition, underpinning new waves of productivity growth, innovation, and consumer surplus as long as the right policies and enablers are in place. Research by the McKinsey Global Institute examines the state of digital data and documents the significant value that can potentially be unlocked. Michael will discuss how the scale and scope of companies' access to data is changing the way they do business - and what business leaders and policy makers need to do to make sure they're on top of the trend.
