Abstract: Under different technological,social and economic backgrounds,different terminologies such as Information assets,Digital assets and Data assets were created due to people’s different understanding about contents in cyberspace.Because the term Asset is related to Resource,Capital and Economy,a series of concepts are extended,such as Information Resources(Capital,Economy),Digital Resources(Capital,Economy),Data Resources(Capital,Economy),etc.This paper reviewed these concepts.Based on the physical attributes,existence attributes and information attributes of data in Big Data context,this paper proposed and advocated the standardization of these concepts into Data Resources,Data Assets,Data Capital and Data Economy,which will be helpful to the exploitation of data resources.

Key words: Data asset, Data resource, Digital economy, Information economy, Big data
