Data is proving to be the new currency in the digital economy. While there have been advancements with the application of big data, it hasn't lived up to the hype in terms of fundamentally changing how business gets done. Real transformation is now happening with the advent of intelligent applications that operationalize all of an organization's data, allowing them to move from just knowing to actually doing in real-time. These new applications are translating critical business problems into data-driven solutions.
