Data has become big business, and is in many ways at the heart of big tech’s recent rise. Bernstein argues that those companies with the best ability to monetize the value of data will be the winners.

Analyst Matti Littunen takes a look at the world of data collection and aggregation, noting that consumer personal data generates more than $50 billion in annual revenues just in data broker and marketing data services. Media spending driven by the data amounts to an additional $100 billion.

Yet data is just another form of noise if it’s not utilized correctly. As a result, Littunen says, there will be a “further value shift in the consumer data supply chain from data extraction and identity profiling to analytics and activation software. Data assets are valuable to the extent they

    Welcome to Silicon Allee: the new global tech hubs

    Tech titans are attracting the world’s brightest talent, creating a concentration of wealth and investment in new city hubs. So much so that buyers intending to purchase a property over the next few years would be wise to invest in a place where one of the neighbours is an internet superstar. Or studying to become one. Research carried out by international estate agents Savills suggests that prices in its 30-strong list of “tech cities” will rise nearly twice as rapidly as those in their global counterparts.

    Some tech cities, of course, have fared better than others, and Singapore has been one of the world’s clear winners. With its high quality of life and reputable universities – Nanyang Technological University and the National University of Singapore stand sixth and eighth respectively in the QS World University Rankings for engineering and technology – it remains very popular with investors looking for the

    E-Commerce Economics Are Broken, Says Tech Startup Tradeswell, And We Can Help Fix Them

    Paul Palmieri was looking at various direct-to-consumer startups as possible investments for his venture capital fund when he decided the e-commerce economics didn’t add up.

    While the sales potential is great, the fees brands pay to what Palmieri calls the ecosystem of e-commerce enablers – for advertising, for keywords, for warehousing, for fulfillment – are destroying margins.

    So instead of investing in a DTC brand, Palmieri decided to invest in starting a company that would help brands large and small master the new math of e-commerce.

    The company, Tradeswell, emerged from stealth mode
