Our infographic shows how big data can be used to cut procurement costs

Big data is now completing the shift from being primarily a concept that people predicted would impact vast swathes of business operations to being given practical applications that are delivering results.
 
A recent Accenture survey[1] of senior company executives across 19 countries showed that 89% of respondents rated big data as either ‘very’ or ‘extremely’ important to their organisations’ digital transformation. A further 82% felt that big data provides a significant source of value to their companies.
