It was 2011 when Peter Sondergaard, a senior director at Gartner, predicted a change in data management strategies known as big data. He said it would create an unprecedented amount of varied and complex information.

Today, businesses store vast amounts of data, much of it across multiple, disparate databases that are unable to talk to each other.
My message to you is to not let this get in the way of understanding your data.
Forget about compiling spreadsheets and slides, you can have online, real time reports that mean something and make a difference to your business decision-making.
