Introduction to Value of Data


A campaign born in Scotland - led by DMA Scotland - we join forces with partners and advocates across the UK to reshape the understanding of the true worth of information.

Scotland is a hub of data expertise, FinTech and exciting, innovative start-ups - the beating heart of a data agenda across the UK's data and marketing industry.

Introducing: Value of Data

Take a look at some thoughts-starters from some of the leaders of the Value of Data campaign - neat introductions into some of the key themes the campaign will examine.

Craig Paterson, executive education advisor, The Data Lab, offers an overview of the project.

Value of Data: Changing perceptions

Value of Data: The role of the CEO

Mark Runacus, Chair of the DMA Board and co-founder / planning partner at Wax/On, on why CEOs must be the standard bearers for organisations looking to really understand data's value and worth.

Shifting values: An introduction to the value of data in a digital economy

Our first whitepaper of the campaign is authored by University of Edinburgh academics Professors Chris Speed and Ewa Luger.

  • The evolution of tech in marketing, and what this means for data and the customer
  • Growing our understanding of the flow of data
  • Value chains and value constellations
  • Designing value
  • The ethical data solution
