Industry-specific data constitutes information about specific industries, especially the automotive and construction industries. However, many other industries are accounted in this category, including the healthcare, agricultural, energy, and manufacturing industries.
This data comes primarily from app or device data, company CRM analytics, and other internal sources collected in company and third-party organization reports. Additional data sources include news and press releases, satellite images, and keyword searches.
Each industry may use these sources to different degrees or have sources not applicable to other industries. In addition, the regulations on collection and privatization of data varies greatly by industry: consider, for example, the healthcare industry vs the agriculture industry.
The data attributes vary wildly by industry. There are few attributes in common between the healthcare field and the agriculture field, for example. Therefore clarify industry standards and your own goals for the collection of the data before recording or purchasing the data.
As noted in the section above, this depends highly on the industry in question. Construction data, for example, assists companies in bidding for new projects. Automotive data assists governments with city planning. And both industries’ data enables companies and governments in planning road construction projects.
For another example, construction companies and renewable energy companies cooperate on reducing carbon emissions in the construction of new buildings.
Essentially, if you consider the goals of organizations within an industry, you will see the many uses of the data. And while the overlap in data usage between industries may seem surprising, it becomes less so when you consider how interconnected we all are.
As always, data quality must be measured by its accuracy, relevancy, completeness, timeliness, and consistency. If you are purchasing data from a vendor and cannot test the accuracy or consistency of the data, ask for a sample dataset to check for relevancy and completeness. Finally, make sure the vendor updates the data frequently.
If you are instead using a software solution to collect and analyze your company data, many vendors offer ready-made solutions that you integrate with your own CRM and data warehouse systems. Consider the software provider’s reputation and consult with your various departments before shopping to ensure the program will suit your needs.
