Q: How do IT leaders measure their success at mastering big data?
A: With the focus on information, we propose a new definition of ROI: return on information. In the next five years, return on information will be the defining measure of success by calculating the value that you derive from your investments to capture, process, store, manage, and analyze information. Leaders will efficiently and cost-effectively extract insight from 100 percent of their data (structured, semi-structured, and unstructured) to drive intelligent business decisions faster. ROI will become a critical measure for success, not only for IT, but for the business.
