Big data has become a meme, shorthand for advancing trends in technology that can shed light on understanding the world and inform better decisions. And, it comes at a time when the amount of data being created is exploding.  Innovation in various underlying technologies is fueling the current excitement in fields like artificial intelligence, robotics and data analysis and prediction. All parts of the technology pipeline are gearing up at the same time, and Big Data is fueling innovation that is likely to create new applications, software and products in the marketplace. 

   

Digital Analytics is the integration of all online and offline channels including your website, Twitter, Facebook, display ads, loyalty card, SEO, mobile application, search, sales data, retail audit data and so much more, and is the key to unlocking insight about customers likes/dislikes, needs etc. Earlier, It was all about getting more eyeballs on the page, with little regard as to what the brains behind them were thinking about doing next. Now that we have more data, it's only natural that marketing departments want to bring in technology to transform that data into information. Modern marketing has evolved!!! Impact on consumers, operations, product development, supply chain, competition are a few benefits to begin with .

"Where despair and hopelessness exist, those who have the ability to take action have the moral responsibility to take action to help those who live on the bare edge of survival.  And democracy is more than the creed of our country, it is the inborn hope of our humanity, an ideal we must carry, a trust we must bear and pass along. And even after all these years, we have a long way yet to travel, that is why we must all be involved ..."  - Baba J Adamu

“Given the emergence of new regional dynamics in development policy and practice, Arewa region MUST fine-tune current regional development perspectives and to develop new ones that are not only more in sync with the present and future global context but with the governance systems being currently adopted that are becoming more and more decentralized and grassroots oriented. States Governors within the Arewa region must come together to create and adopt the Arewa Regional Economic Plan with emphasis on a balanced approach to development and opportunity for all diversity irrespective of one’s tribe, social class, religious belief and even political affiliation; and establish targets for economic growth of the entire region taking advantage of our Demographic Shifts, which will fuel the growth of new sectors, markets, and service lines in our communities. The ability of our diversity to build strength and unity is the power that will propel the region and consequently, the Nigerian industry, into new dimensions of performance and inclusive growth. Catalyzing Inclusive Growth Through ICT-enabled solutions in healthcare, education, financial services and public services can drive socio-economic development and inclusion of more than 30 million citizens each year, faster, cheaper and more effectively than traditional models. The economic plan should be built on current regional opportunities, collaboration and innovation linking States macroeconomic models with regional development and economic plan termed: Regional Econometric Model”President ACRD
