Making data: Sources and strategies

Asset management track

Analytics—and all its attendant benefits—starts with data, but where to begin?

We’ll start this session with a review of the “Five V’s of data:” volume, velocity, veracity, variety and value. Next we’ll consider different sources and types of data, and we’ll talk about the various devices that generate it.

Attendees will leave with a better understanding of what’s available so they can craft a data acquisition strategy that works for them.
