Data Monetization

Take control of a growing asset
 

Municipalities around the world are struggling to fund important initiatives to manage infrastructure and incorporate critical smart solutions. Yet these same municipalities unknowingly possess extensive, and very valuable, datasets of information, with more data becoming increasingly available through the deployment of smart technologies.


One of the keys to helping solve this funding shortfall is already in the hands of these cities - it is their unused, unsold data assets. Monetizing city data reverses the flow to make cities the rightful beneficiaries of this valuable resource.


CCI puts cities in the driver seat
 

We provide a rational, realistic, well-examined path toward monetizing city data assets that maintains the integrity of any Open Data policies that may be in effect. An established framework of monetization programs, with ready buyers and known pricing, is available through our professional team of data sales and marketing experts.  They are ready to assist our clients with characterizing and humanizing data assets, setting prices, and bringing assets forward to a rich, diverse landscape of data buyers. New projects currently being considered by a municipality can easily incorporate CCI's custom monetization projections to help balance out implementation costs.
