Big data can be a valuable tool but it takes time and resources to get the most out of it.
Given the huge rise in most businesses' data assets, most are unable to take full advantage of all of the information they gather.
Organisations are aware of the benefits to be gained by combining structured data with more fluid information gathered from the cloud, social media and mobile devices, however it is lack of knowledge letting companies down.
Executives are faced with a major data management challenge to create any value in mushrooming data, but confess they are ignorant about what they need to know.
Businesses need to become more analytical in their approach to data management to ensure only useful information is kept and combined with existing data to provide insights.
As information is pouring in from a number of places, deletion and deduplication policies should also be in place to streamline processes.

Data is at the core of most modern businesses. Kroll Ontrack provides services and software to help you better manage key data such as MS Exchange and SharePoint.
