The data-driven enterprise

Short program (FC)

The fourth industrial revolution is driven by smart, connected objects, and exploding amounts of data. In this new era where “data is the new oil”, there is little value in “crude” data. But if crude data can be extracted, refined, and piped to where it can impact decisions, its value will soar.
