This book is about the rise of data as a driver of innovation and economic growth. It charts the evolution of business data as a valuable resource and explores some of the key business, economic and social issues surrounding the data-driven revolution we are currently going through.

Readers will gain an understanding of the historical underpinnings of the data business and why the collection and use of data has been driven by commercial needs. Readers will also gain insights into the rise of the modern data-driven technology giants, their business models and reasons for their success. Alongside this, some of the key social issues including privacy are considered and the challenges these pose to policy makers and regulators. Finally, the impact of pervasive computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) are explored in the context of the new sources of data that are being generated.

This book is useful for students and practitioners wanting to better understand the origins and drivers of the current technological revolution and the key role that data plays in innovation and business success.
