Big data technology is changing the game for marketers. It can help in revealing insights about the success or failure of marketing efforts and advertising campaigns. Hence, it is important to delve deeper into how big data can make a difference to a brand.

Every organisation sits on humungous amounts of data; it is important to tap this data properly and at the right time in order to influence the decision-making process.
