A number of studies confirm the value of business intelligence for today’s savvy leaders and executives. With the advent of big data, it is even more important to know how to sift through and interpret a dizzying (and ever-growing) volume of information. Research published by McKinsey in 2014 indicated that businesses that analyze their clients’ data obtain a return on investment that is 131% higher than that of competitors who have yet to take the big data plunge.
