Mark Van Rijmenam, author of the new book Think Bigger, is a strategist who advises organizations on how to effectively manage their big data. He describes what big data is, why organizations should use it, and how they can benefit from it. Rijmenam suggests companies should deal with it now before it is too lateâ€”those that fail to manage big data today will cease to exist 10 to 15 years from now. He offers four tips companies should follow in order to handle their consumersâ€™ privacy information responsibly. And while storing, managing, and analyzing big data can mean a risk for consumer privacy, it does help companies offer their customers better products and services.
