MIT CISR Research Poll: Data monetization
Data and analytics providers are highly experienced at monetizing data, because selling data is what they do. Increasingly, other kinds of companies are trying to monetize their data assets and sell them as new sources of revenue. In MIT CISR’s November research briefing, “Capturing Value from Big Data at comScore Through Platform, People, and Perception,” we describe how comScore achieves value creation from big data via three key assets: a cost-efficient, scalable platform; an analytics-savvy workforce; and a deep understanding of its clients.

Speed is one of the defining characteristics of the digital economy. And speed is, and always has been, central to MIT CISR’s mission. Getting timely research findings to practitioners means translating our learnings into business impacts quickly. And that shapes the way we share information. Our monthly briefings, for example, are concise, targeted, three page research summaries meant to be digested and utilized in short order.
In our speed-driven world there is still a place, however, for a process that takes more time and yields a different type of product: The MIT CISR case study. The case study production process allows CISR researchers to become deeply engaged with an enterprise though extensive interviewing. At the same time, it allows participants an opportunity to reflect on and share experiences and expectations, and then to read how these initiatives look to an objective third party. Recent case study sites include the Securities and Exchange Commission, IBM, DHL Express, Royal Philips, ING Direct Spain, and comScore. MIT CISR case studies are available to the public ninety days after publication. Visit the Publication Search to access MIT CISR case studies.
