A Piano report suggests how marketers can focus on creating unified data sets and collaborate with data analytics partners to overcome the issue of massive datasets.
About 60% of global marketers feel overwhelmed by the amount of data that passes across their desktops, according to Forrester research. To handle massive datasets efficiently, marketers need to first create a unified view of data to eliminate silos and improve communication.
Then, they should align data analytics with specific business goals. Teams throughout the organisation must be given open access to data required to achieve those business goals.
