Recently, I stayed in on the top floor of a hotel. While the view was nice, the elevators were extremely slow. Waiting for the elevator gave me a lot of time to think. And because I was at a software conference, I wondered if anyone was looking at the data that the elevators supplied to see how long it took for elevators to get to the 24th floor, how many elevators needed to be running, and if they needed to configure a block of elevators that catered to floors 1 – 12 and a different block of elevators that catered to floors 13 – 24. But what I was really wondering was “why my needs (getting to the lobby fast) weren’t being met.”
Data fuels Digital Transformation
A key part of companies’ digital transformation journey is learning how to intelligently integrate all of the information they are collecting so that they can cater to this always-on, instant gratification world that we live in. And as that information continues to grow, this task becomes more and more daunting. A recent report by the research firm IDC indicated by the year 2025:
- 75% of the world’s population (more than 6 billion consumers) will interact with data every day
- Each connected person will have at least one data interaction every 18 seconds
- The billions of IoT devices connected across the globe are expected to create over 90 Zettabytes of data
- The collective sum of the world’s data will grow to a massive 175 Zettabytes
This explosion is truly remarkable. And those enterprises that know how to harness information to gain insights to fuel innovation will be the winners in the digital economy. Because those enterprises will be able to satisfy their customers. And satisfied customers are loyal customers.
The question is, how do you harness all of the information collected so you can use it in a productive way to create loyal customers?
