Carla Gentry CSPO‘s insight:

In retail, big data generally refers to the use of sets of information from inside and outside a company that can then be analysed and used to improve profits. These data sets include everything a customer – or potential customer – puts into the internet about a particular brand or about how they consume, and all the information a company collects internally relating to sales patterns and customer relationships.
