MPICT Celebrates the Possibilities of Data

San Francisco, CA - Today massive amounts of information are collected, analyzed, integrated, and disseminated, transforming virtually every industry and offering a wealth of opportunities to make the world a better place.

To mark the important opportunities and diversity that exists within the data economy, MPICT and many others from across the world have joined together to present the second annual Data Innovation Day. The celebration promotes the benefits generated by the current revolution in data, and gives participants the opportunity to showcase the latest data innovations and the economic value of the information economy.

“Our participation in Data Innovation Day highlights our unique role in the evolution of data and our commitment to promoting the continued development of the data economy,” said MPICT's James Jones. “We hope the events today help inform others about the valuable contributions data makes daily to the global economy, the improvement of government, and overall quality of life for billions of citizens around the world.“

Data Innovation Day will be held on January 23, 2014 and will feature events in Washington, DC, Philadelphia, PA, Austin, TX, and Palo, Alto, CA among others.
