Welcome to The Big Data Exchange
The prospect of out-placing your competition by leveraging your company’s data is compelling. With an estimated 90% of the data in the world to-date having been created within the last two years, the sheer volume of data being generated on a daily basis is dizzying. Big Data is the answer for most companies to determine strategies and frameworks to sift through the phenomenal number of customer records, sound recordings, text messages, Facebook comments, Tweets as well as the behavioral and transactional data they continue to receive.
To stay ahead of the pack, business innovator s have to conquer the sheer volume and velocity of business and customer insights available to them; and analyze and leverage this data to better serve their markets.
