The advent of superior technologies related to the internet of things (“IoT”) has created a vast space for data in a manner not possible before. There is data everywhere; and it’s growing bigger faster at a tremendous pace. Smart communication channels have further increased the need for effective management of this huge pool of data emerging from various business sectors around the globe. Every day, 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created globally across various digital communication channels. Data sources are aplenty; it can vary from digital pictures, purchase transaction records, cell phone GPS signals, videos etc. It is becoming increasingly important for organisations to rely on their data to predict the roadmap for their respective businesses.
Big Data Analytics is a game changer that allows organisations to derive actionable insights from their data, which in turn will promote better informed decision making to put early Big Data adopters ahead of competitors. Many however have yet to realise and make use of Big Data to its’ full potential. Organisations that take advantage of Big Data Analytics related processes and technologies stand to gain a clear edge in today’s highly competitive market.
