Matthew Napleton, Sales & Marketing Director at Zizo insists it is time for a fresh, business driven approach.

How your data can turn Black Friday into a White Christmas Returns are a huge area of concern for many retailers; indeed, the sale has not been completed until the customer actually decides to keep the product.

Dashboards - we all love them. They are beautiful to look at and you feel great when you can show your organisation's performance on an iPad.

You need to drill into the underlying data.

Data scientists- do we really need them?
The need for a business to hire an employee to look after its data stems right back to the 1980s. The Database Analyst (DBA) became the one person who was really in control of the business data; the one who understood it, the one who knew which buttons to press and when and the person who could read and deliver the data to the business. Fast-forward 30 years, and we see the introduction of the Data Scientist.

Who Needs Big Data?
The promise is timely access to essential business insight; the reality is a massive dent in the CFO's budget. So why are organisations still investing in big data projects?Â For any CFO concerned about throwing good money after bad on big data deployments that are simply failing to deliver the information the business needs, there are three essential questions to ask. Why does the business need to collect this data? How is it going to provide value? And, critically, if the way IT has attempted to manage big data to date has not succeeded, isnâ€™t there a better way?
