In 2017, data surpassed oil to become the most valuable asset on earth. Let that sink in for a moment.

There is certainly no shortage of data analytics tools out there to help you capture, house, maintain and analyze your data, and we’re seeing an increase lately in data security as well. But more interestingly, we’re seeing an increase in the monetization of data.
