PwC at Mobile World Congress

Turning data into action

Barcelona, Spain

Experience highlights from Mobile World Congress 2017

Data is the new currency. Across all industries, across all businesses, how organisations collect, interpret, and protect data will determine their future. On top of this, the complex and changing regulatory environment is making compliance increasingly difficult. This is the intelligence of the IoT revolution - and PwC helps organisations turn data into action.

At PwC, we create value for our clients, our people, and the communities in which we live and work. What binds us together is our purpose: to build trust in society and solve important problems.
