Background/ Importance: 

Data analytics is a globally important emerging area that organisations around the world are embracing to help them deliver their mission better. In just a few years a whole ecosystem has built up of data sources, analytics tools and techniques for extracting insight from data. In the ICANN context the use of data has the potential to drive: 1. Evidence based policy. | 2. Organisational/community development.  | 3. Cleaner and safer DNS.  | 4. Business - more, new, better | 5. Public trust.   ICANN has already begun work on some initiatives in this area: TLD marketplace indicators and Identifier Technology Health Indicators. But so far there is no strategic theme around data and the issue is not 'owned' at the most senior levels.

Session Goals/Expected Outcomes: 
To bring together everyone with an interest in this area from all parts of the community. | Cover the areas of potential above to help people see the possibilities of how data can drive those areas. | Explain what is now considered best practice and what is emerging practice in this area.  | Help ICANN management/board understand the proper priority that should be given to this area
