Building analytical capabilities is vital if Scotland is to remain competitive in the global information economy. The explosion of data, which has been called ‘the new corporate oil’, is set to continue at an exponential rate. The arrival of the Internet of Things, where billions of internet-connected devices will each generate their own stream of data, only serves to underline this point. According to Cisco, by 2020 there will be 50 billion such devices. But the data is worthless unless there is the analytical capability to extract insights and business value from it.
