Data is the ”oil” in the new digital economy
Data is becoming a more valuable asset as technology advances and we move more into the digital age, just as oil was an important resource in the industrial age.
Companies are now utilizing data in order to improve their services and products. By utilizing data, companies can make more accurate decisions, reduce risk, and optimize processes. Additionally, data can be used to gain insights into customer behavior and preferences.
John D. Rockefeller is a famous figure in the history of the industrial economy due to his efficient and disciplined refining process. He capitalized on the need for oil as an energy source by investing in efficient processes and raising lots of capital to do so. He was also known for cooperating with other refiners and buying them out for generous prices, building a massive oil empire in the process. Fast forward to the digital age, where artificial intelligence is a key driver of the economy and the companies that mirror John D’s business acumen will have a solid dominant competitive advantage.
AI has the potential to replace knowledge workers in many industries, such as consulting, financial planning, healthcare, and law. Companies such as Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok have already made money by gathering data on consumer preferences. Companies that have access to high quality and high quantity of data will be able to sell it to companies that are building AI. Two examples of companies that have already integrated AI into their products are Tesla and Google, who have access to a large amount of data that can improve their products.
