Big Data is known to be the next game-changer in the realm of technology. With enough accurate data, businesses can predict and prepare for outcomes that were once considered impossible. Imagine optimisation that transcends functions like logistics, warehousing, manufacturing, delivery, etc. Companies like DHL and Amazon are already using Big Data to automate processes that help achieve last-minute deliveries at an unprecedented scale. Through data, they can restructure delivery routes, maintain transparency, and coordinate deliveries at the largest possible scale.
Another great example is Uber, and how it’s entering the futuristic space of self-driving cars using massive amounts of consumer data.
