Decision-makers suffer from too much of a good thing
A WORLD OF INFORMATION Enormous amounts of data are created by private individuals, organisations and companies every single day. In fact, ninety per cent of the world’s data has been generated in just the last two years. • 1 billion Facebook updates are made • 400 million tweets are posted • 354 billion job applications are sent ...Every day during 2013! And there´s more. The amount of data will double every two years until 2020.
AN OVERLOAD OF INFORMATION You might think that all this information would make it easier for people to make decisions. But all the signs indicate that the opposite is true. This is because finding exactly what you’re looking for is difficult. And it’s even harder to know if what you eventually find is really accurate.
UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES This is where Bisnode comes in. Because where some people only see challenges and limitations, we see unlimited potential to help you take the next step in your decision-making. You have so much to gain from working with us and using the decision support we provide, as opposed to all too frequently unreliable mass information. At Bisnode, we use the highest quality data. We also possess the necessary expertise to combine it with your data to produce information which would be impossible to find otherwise. Our analytical ability allows us to identify new trends, patterns and consumer behaviours at a very early stage. We’re able to provide completely reliable facts, answers and insights.
A SIMPLER EVERYDAY LIFE Simply put, we can ensure that you get the specific decision support you need to be successful. And we can make sure that the data is integrated into the day-to-day work flow; that it’s presented at the right moment, in the right device, in a way that’s clear and easy to understand.
INFORMATION IN FIGURES • In 2012, the total amount of data in the world amounted to 2.7 zettabytes (one zettabyte is one sextillion bytes.) • 90% of the world’s data has been created in the last two years • The amount of data will double every other year until 2020 • Only 3% of the world’s data is tagged • - 0.5 % of the world’s data is analysed
