How Experian see the data landscape changing in the UK in the next 5 years
The amount of data people generate every day is growing almost exponentially. Advanced analytics and decisioning technologies mean we’re in a better position to understand and help people act on that data than ever before. That opens up incredible opportunities to make positive change in the world – for people, for businesses, and for society.
The way we purchase goods, run our businesses, treat medical patients, and manage our finances are all increasingly shaped by data. Over the next five years people will become increasingly aware of the role that data has in their lives and how they can control and use that data to achieve the best outcomes for them. Consumer control is key: the value exchange, where people choose what data they’re prepared to share in exchange for a service or product from an organisation, will be more and more central to the way we all operate.
We’re living in a period of exciting, unprecedented technological change. As Experian continues to push the boundaries of innovation in the ways we gather, secure, maintain, analyse and deliver data insights to our customers, we’ll see those insights used to make real change in the world. At a fundamental level, as we continue to expand the sources of data we use, we’ll continue to drive financial inclusion and bring more people into the credit economy.
In health, in society, in sport, in every industry you can name: data can help understand and solve problems. That’s why we are so happy to part of this exciting programme, celebrating and supporting some of the people who will help to define that data-driven future.
