The big data market is expected to reach over $76 billion by the end of 2020, and the technology has become much more accessible for businesses of all sizes. Even small businesses can use it to gain insights on their customers and inform business decisions. But what about organizations that are more interested in just staying afloat, rather than focusing on growth? Here’s how big data can be used to revive businesses on the brink.
