Organizations continue to be challenged in developing their capabilities in information or fact-based decision making. Not only IT professionals but business leaders as well have to overcome numerous information hurdles to improve their organization's decision-making abilities. Taking this leap forward means increased complexity: changing engagement models, skills, roles and cultural shifts, the enhancement of existing technologies as well as the adoption of new ones.
