What do you see some of the biggest trends going on with data collection digital that’s going to affect the industry in the next two years.
So I think you know companies are overwhelmed. On the one side they’re overwhelmed they’ve got all this data and they don’t know how to make sense of it. And so the biggest thing that they can do is really find separate the wheat from the chaff.
What single piece of advice would you give to someone that was asking for it.
