What is Big Data and Why does it Matter?
The exponential growth of data presents enormous opportunities and considerable challenges to organisations across the world. A recent study by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) commissioned by SAS found that better use of big data – through high-performance analytics – could add £216 billion to the UK economy by 2017.
Yet other studies suggest that this opportunity is not being exploited, with many leaders lacking confidence in their organisation’s data management capabilities.
