The growing consensus now is SME merchants who act on intelligence from a single source of data become leaders in their market.

 

Trading data is as much an enemy as a friend

But it need not be like that

How can merchants capitalise on large amounts of ever-growing ecommerce data?

With so much data created, from so many sources, it can be difficult to find intelligence in the noise that leads to efficiency and profit.

According the analysts data can be too much and never enough

In 2020 Dell Technologies commissioned the Digital Transformation Index (DT Index) study to assess digital maturity of businesses around the world.

  • Data is the number one barrier to transformation AND is their biggest asset
  • Businesses are struggling to reconcile multiple data sources, technology and people
  • Businesses say they need more data - but cannot analyse or meet the security and GDPR compliance requirements
  • Businesses feel overwhelmed by the data they have. 91% of businesses agree that extracting valuable insights from data will be more important for their business than ever before
