Why the U.S. is the player with all the right cards | Business without Borders
June 6th, 2013 | Business Without Borders | by Susan Bourette.

(1) Similarly, harnessing the promise of “big data” could yield productivity gains across many sectors. The United States is uniquely positioned to capture the opportunity given that it has led technological development and owns a disproportionate share of the world’s data assets, the report states.

To put this into perspective, McKinsey has analyzed big data’s potential in four large and markedly different sectors: retail, manufacturing, health care and government services. “In these sample sectors alone, we estimate that the widespread use of big data analytics could produce up to $635 billion in productivity gains and cost savings, resulting in an incremental increase of at least $265 billion in annual GDP by 2020,” the report says.

Possible send to Earl Davis of Teachers.

To capture this opportunity, Canadian companies need an intimate understanding of the new Asian consumers. First, on the consumption and services front, they need to locate these consumers, with forensic precision....Second, Canadian companies need to understand the diverse and evolving tastes of Asian consumers. Across the region, the number of higher income households is rapidly expanding. These consumers are often young, are more international in their outlook, and are more willing to pay a premium for quality products. They consume more services, from education and health care to foreign travel....Third, Another significant opportunity for Canada is the provision and delivery of food, energy, and natural resources. By 2030, global demand for food is expected to rise by more than 25 per cent, mostly in Asia, and fertilizer demand will grow by 50 per cent.
