Just a few years ago, all the talk was about Big Data -- what it is, why you should invest in it, what its impact would be.

We've quickly moved beyond that. Today's data conversation is much deeper and more nuanced. Now the focus is on how companies are using data in smarter, more agile ways to meet business needs. Data-driven marketing, in particular, has emerged as a top concern for marketers and advertisers, as the connection between analytics and marketing is proving to be powerful and far-reaching. Marketing leaders realize that whether they're leveraging their own CRM data, social media data, or anything in between, the need to optimize their companies' data investment is greater than ever.
