Big Data

What is big data?

Think of everything you’ve done since waking up this morning. Maybe you opened an email. Responded to a text. Filled out a form. Used your debit card to buy a coffee. Swiped into the office?

Despite not being able to read your mind, we can place pretty high bets that so far today – whether it be 8 am or 9 pm – you’ve created some sort of data.  

The fact is that today, almost everything we do creates data, and it’s estimated that by 2020, there will be more data in the world that grains of sand.

What does this all mean for businesses?

Well, it’s good and bad news. The good news is that there’s now endless opportunity to gain insight and understanding into how the everyday interactions in your organisation can be optimised to help you achieve your goals.

The bad news is that if you’re not already utilising this, you could be holding yourself back from reaching your full potential as an organisation.

Why should you care?

Data is an asset and if utilised in the right way, it can certainly translate into a more profitable organisation.
