Data is the lifeblood for intelligent companies today. Organizations are leveraging data to make smarter, faster decisions, and drive greater business outcomes. The benefits from data are obvious: competitive advantage, reduced costs, new services, new revenue streams, and enhanced customer experience, to name just a few. Companies are rushing to take advantage of data and maturing new technologies that move, mine, and consume increasingly diverse data from an ever larger array of sources.
