Data is the new oil. Its real potential is the business insights that can be derived from this new, vast, and growing natural resource. If data is the next big thing, then companies need to think about a new business model that exploits this valuable resource.
In order to extract the most value from data, companies must deploy a data-centric technology infrastructure and design new data governance processes. They must also be able to analyze, process and integrate an extremely large amount of new Big Data types in almost real time. To do so, they will need new technologies and processing capabilities, such as new Data warehouse appliances and Hadoop, among others, that are now accessible and affordable for organizations of any size.
However, companies also need to develop new analytic skills to gain more business insights and evolve from a traditional reactive approach to a new predictive one. The latter objective is actually the real challenge. A new breed of professionals, Data Scientists, will henceforth play a leading role in both the implementation of new strategies to extract value from data and in helping top executives understand their businesses better by discovering the intrinsic meaning of information patterns.
