BossNData Episode 19: Data creates Business with Sameer Rahman

Welcome to the MBN Solutions Boss ‘n’ Data podcast show

You can watch our podcast series below or listen here:


Data has played a transformative role in the creation of the modern business landscape. The dynamic interplay between data, business strategy and the commercialisation of data assets has assisted in the creation of some of the largest and most profitable businesses on the planet. 

Today’s businesses, in any sector, must seek to understand how to harness data to drive innovation and unlock new revenue streams, how a data strategy should exist symbiotically with a business strategy and how to navigate the undoubted challenges, including ethical considerations, that underpin responsible data commercialisation. 

None of this is easy – but all of this can be learned.

Rob is joined by Sameer who explains:
  • The importance of a visionary CEO in harnessing the potential of data as a business creator.
  • How various businesses have built commercial propositions from their data assets.
  • Why the key building blocks of vision, strategy, data literacy, technology and process are essential in data creating business advantage.
