Data has more potential value when it can be shared. In order to monetize data, it must first be made shareable: shareable data is an asset that can be sold, traded, or used to create new data marketplaces. Mona Vernon outlines a framework to structure thinking about data shareability and monetization and explores these new business opportunities.
