Within the next five years enterprise data is expected to grow by as much as 650% and a significant portion of this explosion will be in the area of unstructured data. For example, 600 million Facebook users add approximately 30 billion pieces of content to the popular social media site on a monthly basis. The Twitter community generates over 1 terabyte of tweets every day. Add that to the exponential growth in mobile data and there is a wealth of data that many companies are not taking advantage of.
Big Data can unlock significant value by making information transparent and usable at much higher frequency. Armed with BIG Data, companies can:
- Know how much consumers spent
- The markets or regions in which they spent it
- When they spend it, what they spent it on, and in which channels.
- How is the rising use of smartphones affecting stores sales and consumer buying habits?
- Understand if different customer segments make use of multiple channels in different ways?
- Who are the highest-value customers, and are they loyal or considering moving to a different brand?
If you are a company that has the capacity to collect, integrate and analyze both structured and unstructured data you will have greater insight and have a distinct advantage over your competitors
