Data can be an intimidating concept for a new company, especially a startup.

A startup has the luxury of using Big Data results in a way that is similar to giants.
Right now, using Big Data is more accessible than hiring a secretary if you know what to measure and how to use the results. The primary difficulty is selecting the KPIs that fit the company’s strategy.
