In the age of the ‘Digital Enterprise’, technology disruption has become omnipresent. It is helping organisations, in every industry, use information to make choices about what markets to pursue, create business advantages, gain competitive differentiation and manage costs.

The central ingredient: Data.

To take advantage of the intelligence enabled by the collection of Data, one must understand the methodologies, processes, architectures, and technologies that transform raw data into meaningful and useful information, so that it may be used to integrate more effective strategic, tactical, and operational insights in the decision-making process.

  • To understand the steps in the transformation of data collection to decision making.

These ‘disruptive technologies’ are currently turning everything upside down, enabling a quick, individualized and resource-efficient form of customer management.
