This lecture took place on July 14, 2021.

As excitement grows around new monetization opportunities for data and services in business networks, we are pleased to present an expert panel for discussion on the topic.  This panel will explore opportunities to monetize data and services within consortium networks. Expect to hear differing perspectives from our expert panelists, as they come from different industries and will have different views on the role of data, shared services, governance, and tokens. Viewers will leave the event with a clearer picture of the possible ledger-based business models for mobility, permissioned data, the “trusted trip,” and how the core network services of governance, authority, identity, and assurance (GAIA) can accelerate monetization.
