Business intelligence in an IoT-enabled world promises to convey competitive advantage, operational efficiency and automated support for revamped business models. Great!

Our schools can’t produce enough data scientists to fulfill the need to find insights within the vast amounts of data we now have at hand. If you’re the CEO of a modern digital business, you need to find a way to scale insights without sending thousands of employees back to school to get PhDs in statistics.
