Rare are the companies that don't exploit their data today, but also rare are those that have succeeded in scaling up its use and putting data at the heart of their activity.

We are now entering the era of Data At Scale: the first successes of data projects and products are arriving and lessons have been learned from the mistakes made.

You may recognize yourself in some, and be able to anticipate and be proactive for others.
