Impacts and Recommendations

  • Since only a small percentage of companies have defined a big data strategy, most companies risk losing the competitive advantage for operational efficiency and customer experience that big data analytics would give them
  • Transportation leaders who don't take advantage of the exponential growth of available internal and external data risk lagging in efficiency, agility and relationships with stakeholders
  • Transportation leaders in companies with fleets will be compelled to take advantage of the technological and methodological advancements of big data or risk higher costs and lower profits than their competitors
