When Information Revolution1 was published in 2006, no Chinese based companies were among the top 10 largest companies by market capitalization. Apple didnít sell phones. Facebook was something college kids used to connect with their friends. Back then, we talked a lot about the amount of data coming in and faster processing speed.
What we believed then remains true today: Data, and the decision-making process, can be moved throughout the organization to equip every decision maker (automated, line worker, analyst, executive) to make the best choices. By operationalizing analytics, organizations can identify and quantify both opportunity and risk. Information Revolution highlighted SASí Information Evolution Model, which helps organizations understand how they interact with their information and how to extract more value from it through analytics.
