Washington, DC, June 27, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum states that we stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. Klaus is describing the Fourth Industrial Revolution or the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterised by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres. In order to make this point, the author Jay Zaidi has labeled the Fourth Industrial Revolution the "Age of Data."
This book was written for readers across all industries and skill levels. If they are currently a leader, aspire to be one, or wish to influence their leadership team, and move up the corporate ladder in the "Age of Data", then this book is for them.
Organizations are being forced to undergo a digital transformation and this is creating a tumultuous period of change for them. Those that wish to win with data must implement a data culture - a complex undertaking. It requires an in-depth understanding of the data ecosystem, its components, and the interaction between people, process, technology, and data, to deliver business value. Being data-savvy and data-driven are core skills for leaders and their organizations to win in the "Age of Data."
The Chief Data Scientist of the U.S. DJ Patil says, "Succeeding with data isn't just a matter of putting Hadoop in your machine room or hiring some physicists with crazy math skills. It requires you to develop a data culture that involves people throughout the organisation."
The book will be available in paperback, and eBook formats via Amazon.com and thousands of online and offline bookstores. The list price for the paperback edition is US $24.95 and the eBook is priced at US $9.99.
