Data has become part of our competitive landscape and every day. It’s being used to solve complex problems and to help make impactful business decisions. As the importance of data has increased, so has the considerable demand to get it right, along with the competitive pressure to do it quickly. As a result, companies are beginning to think of their data as an asset, and many are starting to manage it that way.
