Practical considerations for media businesses looking to add data products to their existing subscription offerings

Building a data product involves collecting, processing, and utilizing data to deliver value to users, and most publishers are looking at how they can leverage data to provide their customers with in-depth insights, industry intelligence and enhanced data-driven storytelling.  Whilst some businesses are just starting to explore adding data products, others are some way into this process and many have successfully launched a data product and are now looking at adding more.

The challenges and focus areas that will be considered in this discussion include:

  • Why not all data products work: key must dos in the proposition, design, and development stage of a product
  • Avoiding a feature-led approach to new products – what benefit is the product providing your customers?
  • Practical considerations when collecting large volumes of data – the importance of automation, scalable technologies and architectures that can grow as your data grows
  • Best practices that ensure efficiency, accuracy, and manageability when transforming large sets of raw data
  • Building a robust and efficient data transformation pipeline: what are the main areas of consideration within the data processing aspect of a product build?


Every data product build brings its own unique set of requirements. This free-to-attend online roundtable is hosted by Merit Data & Technology on October 11th 2023 at 3pm.

Con Conlon, CEO will be joined by industry practitioners who have successfully launched data products and can take us through the stages to getting a data product up and running. The roundtable will focus on practical considerations around collection, processing and transforming large sets of data, and provide suggestions on how the ongoing maintenance can be managed and embedded into a business, once the product has been launched.
