They say the world used to run on oil, then it ran on data, and today it runs on fast data. For data-driven businesses it’s no longer enough just to have the right information, they need the right information, right now.
Take Amazon for example, they found that delaying their data by just one second could end up costing them $1.6 billion in sales. Why? Today’s customers are accustomed to incredibly fast-paced standards when it comes to online services. Businesses that can’t serve up pricing and product recommendations in real-time fall behind. The business benefits of transforming into a data-driven organization are unprecedented.
