Big data represents a profound shift in the use of contextual information to shape business decision making. Going far beyond traditional business intelligence, big data analytics enables faster, less expensive, better decisions, and even the creation of innovative new products and services that are linked to rapid, iterative experimentation.
Thanks to an absence of legacy foot-dragging, which can slow the implementation of new analytics platforms in developed markets, companies in emerging markets are moving forward decisively to exploit analytics, particularly the data flow from ubiquitous consumer mobile devices. Singapore, in particular, is a hotbed of big-data experiments and field laboratories that are changing the way that companies use analytics and learn.
