How Meribeth is building a better working world

 “The age of data has arrived. Data will fuel the global economy and therefore peace, prosperity and growth – as the oil did in the 20th century.

Major corporations will obtain as much data as possible to help better target consumers. What most companies are missing are scenarios in which litigation hits. When you need to find out what actually happened in cases of fraud or non-compliance, oceans of data can turn into restless waters.

With all these oceans of data accumulating by the minute, it becomes harder and harder to manage, segregate, preserve and handle all the data correctly.

Not being able to properly collect, process and review information can turn the dream of big data into a huge nightmare for anyone involved in the digitalized society.”
