What is the Personal Data Economy
“Putting the power back in the hands of consumers will develop a trust with brands that makes for a more productive relationship.” (Marketingweek.com)
Individuals will hold their own data and give permissioned and specific access to the companies they wish to share their information with.
As an opportunity, businesses will then have access to not only “slivers of customer data” as they have at present, but “rich accurate customer data” from a variety of sources to deliver the personalised services their customers demand. This Value Exchange is called the “Personal Data Economy” as seen in the image below.
Digi.me is one of the enablers of the Personal Data Economy where value for Personal Data exchange is seamless.
