Better data analysis for better decision making
Data is a natural resource. Its potential must be harnessed carefully from its collection and management to its analysis and insights. In this digital frontier, Statista projected the global data creation to exceed 180 zettabytes by 2025. That’s more than 180 billion terabytes or — if you like zeroes — 180,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes, or 144 x 1022 bits.
Within the mountains of data is information that can provide solutions to everyday life, from classrooms and businesses, to achieving the world’s sustainable development goals (SDGs). Accumulating data is not enough. There is a need to extract the relevant information and insights from the data to make quicker, more informed decisions and generate beneficial actions for our well-being.
