Organisations from around the globe have been quick to jump on the data bandwagon to improve efficiency, reduce costs and increase sales. Over the past several years, companies specialising in big data and connectivity have focused on investment activity representing over USD$800 billion in 2020 alone. Interestingly, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased this activity making data more important than ever for businesses wishing to make informed decisions.
