How Big Data Can Change The Way Business Is Done

 3 min read / 

It has been a while since the dark exploration into Big Data’s world has started to be perceived as a powerful means of enhancement for corporate strategy. To better understand the use of this tool, a practical starting point comes from the comprehension of Big Data’s meaning and their origin of application.

Time For A Change

Generally speaking, companies are seeking help with this kind of analysis when there is the need of processing an enormous amount of data in a reasonable short span of time, through a more efficient way of collecting and distributing results.

The movement towards a spreading concept of “information economy”, where the ability of a company to collect and interpret data has become essential in the decision-making process, is key to understanding the great rise of Big Data analysis.

Focusing the attention on the influence of this approach, the most effective feature to be observed is by far its potential in modifying and improving several corporate functions.

Efficiency And Cost Avoidance

As a matter of fact, Big Data analysis allows companies to avoid wasting money and time: the better knowledge of customer behaviour and preferences makes it easier for firms to make references and to focus only on people who are interested in the product they are offering. Furthermore, through a correct inspection of Big Data, companies are capable of understanding which part of a campaign has been a misuse of funds and, otherwise, where the most consistent portion of one’s earnings are coming from. This approach is making innovation management completely “web-behaviour-oriented”, allowing companies to be more efficient in managing available sources.

Taking into account the financial environment, the banking and trading culture is becoming more “scientific”, through the implementation of a more rigorous work method aimed at avoiding mistakes. The general approach of market players reflects the basic concept of Big Data analysis: if you do not follow the data, others will overtake you.

Hedging The Bets

Financial services have largely adopted Big Data analysis to ensure better investment decisions with consistent returns. In conjunction with a data-driven overture, algorithmic trading uses extended historical data with complex mathematical models to maximise portfolio returns.

In addition to that, another relevant innovation brought by this rising trend is the one concerning the internal organisation of companies, their pillar culture and human resources management.

In fact, the “dating” method means that HR managers may search and evaluate a candidate in their business using a data-driven approach to outlining his/her profile inferred through his/her behaviour on the web.

The Growing Potential

In the end, an essential remark concerns the coexistence of the Big Data approach with the spreading of new technologies, like the AI’s machine learning development. Imagine, for instance, how the world of commerce (e-commerce above all) could radically change if software were capable of deducting, from the collected data, the products customers are about to need.

This opportunity represents exactly the reason why, right now, it is fundamental for the firms to expand client databases and to develop new mechanisms for data exchange, keeping direct contact with clients and using web sources to understand and foresee their preferences.
