How the On-Demand/Gig Economy is Redefining the Future of Work

Enrich Your Products & Services with Data Wrapping
Commoditization pressures and shifting consumer expectations have inspired many companies to use data and analytics to enrich their core products and services, a phenomenon that we call wrapping. Companies wrap offerings with information to differentiate them and to add value to customers, which increases product- or service-related outcomes that include price, sales, and loyalty. The best companies build distinctive competencies for wrapping. This panel will investigate the competencies found in high-performing firms-and identify effective ways that firms are coordinating and structuring to accommodate this emergent approach for driving value from the firm's data assets.

Barbara Haley Wixom, MIT CISR, will moderate the panel including:
