Data Republic was co-founded by Danny Gilligan and Paul McCarney after observing the convergence of personalisation agendas, data strategy and the looming disruptive potential, and risk, associated with insight from big data in the Board rooms of several of Australia’s leading companies.
Paul and Danny realised that in order to compete, organisations needed to increase their access to validated data sources.
Their attention turned to the emerging trend of multi-lateral data exchange which enables organisations to exchange data to connect and build insights around what products, services and communications would most benefit customers at a given time. However, with this increased appetite for insights, Paul and Danny found that there had been a decrease in best practice for data governance and growing risks associated with dataset exchanges.
Data Republic was founded to empower the liquidity of data by delivering technology which offers best-practice security, privacy compliance and governance controls for organisations looking to exchange data.
