BIG DATA has been on the tip of everyone’s tongue for the past several years now, and for good reason. As digital devices and touchpoints proliferate, so too does the amount of data we each create.

By choosing the right Big Data sources and applications, we can put our organisations at a competitive advantage. But to do that, we need to understand Big Data’s definition, capabilities, and implications.
