In the digital age, organizations collect and use an extensive amount of data to understand how various parts of their businesses, including customers, work and to formulate appropriate strategies. Marketers use data to understand and target their customers better, while others use data for facilities and energy management leading to more efficient and sustainable operations, or to improve the effectiveness and efficiency in numerous health care applications.
