Summary of Data Crush
How the Information Tidal Wave is Driving New Business Opportunities
Copyright © 2014 AMACOM, a division of American Management Association
Christopher Surdak, a veteran technology analyst, takes on the business challenges of vast data volumes – or the “data crush” – including mobility, cloud computing and social networking. His solutions turn your customers into individual target markets, demolish familiar infrastructures, send processes to the “cloud” and see human decision making as awfully slow. The sea change he foresees will test your imagination and your determination to avoid business death by data. Surdak usefully ends each chapter with suggested actions, and presents future scenarios from the brave new world. Despite the book’s occasional leaps into the unlikely, getAbstract recommends its prescient prescriptions to business planners seeking a functional glimpse of the future. It’s a wake-up call for those hoping in vain that business-as-usual will endure.
In this summary, you will learn
- Where the new data in the “data crush” come from
- What forces drive new data
- How it will affect your business
- What managers must do to profit from the deluge
Comment on this summary
2 years agoInteresting point of view. Great future thinking, however, the 2020 date is unrealistic. The IRS example actually made me laugh. The IRS will never give bonuses for early filing. Technology will change the world and the government will figure out a way to tax it.
3 years agowow, again another prediction of the end of paper....not now needed
