If data is the ‘new gold’, is data mining the new gold rush? Companies and governments are racing to accumulate and exploit as much data as possible. Data about customers, operations, transactions, interactions – and the list continues. Data has been a significant innovation driver for several segments of developed economies. It is among the most prized assets of not only data-driven technology companies but also governments and individuals. Data has a substantial inherent value. Realization of this value drives the rapidly expanding data-oriented technology sector. Data mining technologies have been playing a central role in an increasing spectrum of economic activities. Growing data economy has been manifesting along several dimensions. We shall explore the pertinent dimensions of data economy and trends at the intersections of academic and commercial interests in data-oriented technologies.
