Crossing the Analytical Divide: New Technologies, New Skills

As all industries make the transition to the world of digital business, organizations can maximize value from better Information Management practices through innovation, value creation, efficiency and risk mitigation. An information strategy tuned for the challenges of digital business is the key to success.

The digital divide separated people into those who had access to the internet and those who did not. Now businesses can be separated into those who take analytics to the next level, and those who are stuck with management reporting; the analytical divide. Organizations that take analytics to the next level go beyond internal management reporting. They apply their analytics to their business model.
