In other industries, including healthcare and travel, this embedding of technology is generating what is being called “big data.” Big data is fine-grained information—about customer experiences, organizational processes, and emergent trends—that is generated as customers conduct normal business. The organization of this data can be a rich source of business analysis that improves performance and even points to new opportunities.
