With the huge focus on big data over the past year, it can be seen that data itself is becoming a new type of corporate asset that represents a key basis for competition. But big data is only part of the story. What we’re finding is that small data is actually playing as important, if not a more important role, than big data. With most organisations struggling to handle the volumes of data they already have, the priority isn’t overlaying more data, but using existing data to deliver better business outcomes. With the proper tools, protections and incentives this can now happen, and small data can become a shared network of knowledge and insight that grows every minute of every day. It can be used to deliver better customer experiences and help the organisation react faster to market forces and opportunities. For most organisations, harnessing small data is the most effective route to better productivity, faster innovation and greater agility.
