The Big Deal about Big Data


Why Big Data Matters

Big Data is all around us, transforming the way we shop, eat, network, exercise and invest.

Big Data is Constantly Generated and Consumed

From smartphones to social media posts, people create and consume data every second of every day. Big Data is a popular term used to describe the growth and availability of this data. It also refers to the technologies and analytics that collect, manage and extract useful insights.

Big Data is Revolutionising Industries

Companies that find ways to harness Big Data may separate themselves from their competitors and create value for investors.

Companies Leverage Big Data to Gain a Competitive Advantage

When companies use Big Data, they are five times more likely to make decisions much faster than their competition.9
