We are entering an age where data is becoming an extension of our daily lives. With online and offline behavior blending into a single entity, we are witnessing unprecedented creation and demand for information. This explosion of data fueled from new sources such as mobile devices, collaboration tools and social networks is creating a tremendous opportunity for businesses. This is an exciting time for organizations to achieve a new level of insight from this data.
