Ray Bugg, the founder and Managing Director of DIGIT, said: “As technology continues to penetrate every aspect of business, more and more companies are realising that data is not simply records to be stored, but an enormous business asset. However, the challenge is ensuring that the data works for you and can be stored, analysed, visualised and acted upon as a force multiplier for real business change.
