Q: How can CIOs get the most out of internal and external Big Data sources?
A: Think of it as the next really important evolution in the analytics space. There [are several] things that this will drive way beyond sales. It’s inventory driven, it’s managing excess inventory. It’s your product mix for profitability, it’s customer retention and acquisition. It’s brand equity, and it’s actually going to inform product design. If I am 10 or 15 percent better at two or three of those than my competition, that’s enough for me to kill my competition.
