The entire world is creating endless volumes of valuable information and data every single second. Much of this is credited to social media, which is projected to consume more than 4 trillion minutes of the population's time over the next year. But it's also driven by the vast amount of data that is generated by companies which create highly personalized, online interactions with customers to find out more about them, as well as advancements in cloud computing, agile software development and content creation. With the digital universe projected to double every two years, CIOs can't afford to allow their organization to fall behind. The new book, Data Crush: How the Information Tidal Wave is Driving New Business Opportunities (Amacon), explores these and other digital-age phenomenon. Even better, author Christopher Surdak offers a wide range of best practices to maximize the value of data as a business-driving asset. We've included 10 of them here. Surdak is a technology evangelist for Hewlett-Packard, with more than two decades of leadership experience in collaboration, big data, social media, information security and compliance.
