"Generating financial and consumer ROI requires business leaders to fully understand the drivers and dynamics of digital transformation and big data.
All sectors are vastly dependent on digital touchpoints and require companies to develop digital excellence strategies if they wish to grow and generate competitive advantages. Companies must accelerate the adoption of a data-driven strategy with a customer-centric scorecard or they risk facing disruption.
