As people, activities and objects become increasingly connected, data is now the currency of business. The scope to derive insight from data, to gain foresight, and enable better decision-making, has exponentially increased:

  • Insights into who your customers are, what they want and why, is a rapidly-rising strategic imperative - but given the sheer wealth of data now available, what is the potential for foresight into their evolving behaviours, demands and expectations?
  • Insights into who your suppliers are, and the unpredictable global environments in which the supply chain operates, is of increasing importance to businesses - so how could innovative technology provide greater visibility to help businesses avoid shocks and minimise risk?
