GEO business transformation to a new relevance chain

Last week I visited the Geospatial World Forum in Lissabon.  Great minds captured in a silo mentality it seemed to me.  This is nothing special about the GEO community, this is reflected a little everywhere.
The business transformation happening in the overal relevance chain  (my new wording for value chain)  is changing .

The amount of data with a geo component is increasing dramatically in the world.  This brings geo in the forefront of new policies like pricacy that was unheard of before.
The massive amount of data is crushed to relevant patterns, and goes well beyond an expert analysis of a satellite image to forecast drought in sub-Sahara.  It is about investigating the music that will be played in a local store, personalised according to the playlists of the smartphones that have been geolocalised in that store over the past weeks and linking it with higher engagement/sales in that store.  It is about geotagging the whole public and private debates, discussions, aspiration, categorising them in the Maslov pyramid and providing a new blended experience personal buble.  It is about a new debate of technology, humanity and society.  Will you join it?
