I’ve spent nearly my entire career working on Wall Street and I’ve realized one of the most commonly used refrains is totally wrong

Junta Nakai has spent his career on Wall Street and in financial technology.  In this op-ed, Nakai argues that the common refrain that "data is the new oil" is inaccurate.  While data has potential to drive revenue growth and cut costs, most companies don't have the expertise to get real value from it, he says.  "Data is the oil of the 21st century" is commonly quoted in corporate America today.
