What is Big Data?
Big data is a wide collection of data from multiple sources, both internal and external, that can be used for ongoing discovery and analysis. In depth analyses of big data is instrumental in risk reduction, cost reduction and greater operational efficiency for any industry. Big data and its proper analysis is crucial for operators, investors, legislators and researchers alike.
Why are New Frontier Data's services needed?
Until recently, the multibillion dollar cannabis industry has been guided by little to no business intelligence, rooted in a lack of vetted and comprehensive data. New Frontier Data’s proprietary approach to data, meta-tagging, and analysis make it possible for investors, policy makers, researchers and operators to make informed decisions in the cannabis industry, while minimizing risk  – all based on authoritative and trusted intelligence.

Tech & Development

Who has the data?
Critical data lies at the source, with the Owner Operators, as well as with various government agencies such as IRS, DOJ, and NIH. The challenge is that Operators have been reluctant to share their data due to Patient Privacy concerns and until now have had no incentive to overcome their hesitancy. On the government side, the infancy of the sector and burdening bureaucratic process have enabled state and federal agencies from properly aggregating and disseminating the available data. Some data has recently become available from states such as Colorado, but given that the regulatory environment itself is nascent, data reporting requirements are still being crafted, and therefore data is yet to be properly collected.
How do you put together the data into a cohesive report and technology platform?
Our system utilizes a reciprocal data flow to give both best-in-class industry and customized on-demand reports and insights. Proprietary consumer behavior predictability tools allow operators to optimize their price points and increase revenues in order to maximize their profit margins. We bring this together with a news and reporting service providing in-depth coverage of leading production, consumer, legislative, and regulatory analysis from the nation’s capital, the individual states, and around the world.
What happens to my data when I share it? Will my patient’s information be published or become public?
New Frontier Data is committed to respecting and protecting patient-identifying-information as mandated by the law. We would have a very short business path if we infringed upon federally-mandated regulations. We have developed our technological infrastructure with that in mind, and will never collect any Patient-Identifying-Information.  Once data is uploaded to our system by operators or third-parties, it will go into what we call a ‘purgatory’ bin, where we will vet the source, validate its validity, and then, and only then, aggregate it with the relevant and appropriate larger data set so that we can continue to provide statistically meaningful data sets back to the data-provider and larger community. Think of your data as a drop of water in a bucket. We will never be able to pull your specific information back out.
