Forget Brussels. Never mind Bruges. Ignore Antwerp. Why? Because there’s Ghent. It is an open secret that Ghent is a hidden gem – an often overlooked Flemish city that is home to medieval cathedrals, winding canals, quaint cobblestone streets, and an allegedly haunted castle with the oh-so-appropriate name of Gravensteen. Now, through word of mouth and social media, even more tourists and modern-day explorers have discovered this under-the radar utopia. Sadly, the new influx of…

Today, Caesar’s Entertainment announced that it had reached an agreement on the terms of a recommended cash acquisition of British betting house William Hill for approximately $3.7 billion. If this transaction goes through, the company will be more diversified in terms of geographical exposure and the type of gaming it offers to its customers.

But the clinical trial process to bring these advances to market is stuck in the 20th century: time-consuming and clunky, managed with spreadsheets and reams of paper, making data difficult to access and share. Derk Arts is changing that with the company he…

These days, it is not a question of whether companies are collecting and analyzing data on their execution of operations, but rather how effectively they are doing so. Companies spanning industries are all prioritizing their data analysis capabilities. They seek the real-time insights enabled from complete data visibility, which can optimize their processes. Before organizations can begin gleaning insights from their data, it is essential to assess their data maturity level. Organizations that successfully gauge…

Remember big data? Big data was introduced way back in 2005. It was intended to describe the harnessing of critical information from disparate systems and situating that information into one place for analysis.
