It turns out that the problem with big data is that it’s … big.
“When we get really focused on the ‘big’ part, it can drive us to this thing where we just sort of take it as truth that more is better, and I think when it comes to data, we actually have to get away from ‘more is better’ and get into this place of thinking that ‘good is better.’” (Annie Duke)
Welcome to the latest edition of Gartner ThinkCast. This time out, we’re cutting data down to size with smart decision-making expert Annie Duke. Also, Gartner expert Brook Selassie gives you the information you need to build a successful business model for the Digital Era, something that’s proving rather problematic for most organizations.
“This low progress, of course, carries a high cost. Most companies’ digital efforts are missing expectations for both revenue and profit.” (Brook Selassie, Gartner)
And speaking of size, Gartner expert Alan Duncan tells us why going digital is proving to be a big challenge for many midsize enterprises.
“What I’m seeing and hearing in the interactions I’m having with midsize organizations is I kind of sense a degree of reluctance to admit that the world’s changing.” (Alan Duncan, Gartner)
