Data: The Haves and the Have Nots


Last week I lost my phone, bank cards, and ID. With app driven banking and international cards all needing 2-factor authentication, I quickly fell off the planet. This week, with a new phone, I return from a conference where Forrester and the Economic Intelligence Unit suggests 27% future business growth for companies with a direct line to data and the insights driven from it, compared to the typical growth rate of 3.5%. This gulf between the Haves and Have Nots I suspect will grow even wider.
