Flexibility, scalability, efficiency, and speed to market are some of the reasons enterprises are turning to cloud-based applications in their efforts to enable data-driven decision making. Organizations of all sizes are discovering that taking advantage of big data may not require huge investments in IT infrastructure and that cloud-based analytics tools can eliminate the need for massive development efforts.
