Data sharing is a hot topic. Multiple analysts and consultancies have been featuring data sharing as one of the key enablers to successful business partnerships and accelerated growth. Both Gartner and McKinsey have good articles; indeed, Gartner boldly claims that “data and analytics leaders who share data externally generate three times more measurable economic benefit than those who do not.”
Many organizations are either not sharing data because of cultural issues, technical hurdles, or simply the fear of doing something wrong. They are missing out on opportunities to get ahead of their competition and strengthen their bonds both within and beyond company walls.
