Data usage is evolving, but so are data quality tools and users
Over the past few years, we at Experian have seen a big shift in data usage. Businesses are learning how to truly unlock the power of data to better serve their clients.
We are living in a world where data collection is growing exponentially, where organisations of all shapes and sizes are starting to recognise the strategic importance of data assets and not treating them as simply a by-product of business operations. Whether it is transactional information, customer behaviour patterns, logistics data, financial performance or any other form of data asset, businesses are starting to find it difficult to understand and manage data, big or small.

At this point you have probably heard about big data a million times. It's a bit of a meme and a marketing term, it won’t probably predict wars before they happen, I personally doubt that it will cure cancer, and I’m not sure if Netflix really needed big data to create their hit House of Cards. Although I have to admit. Kevin Spacey was pretty good.
