The increase of businesses using social media marketing has created new ways to identify, contact, interact, and satisfy consumers. We have reached the point where we have access to huge amounts of data that were inconceivable ten years ago. This creates opportunities to gain new insights and to improve decision-making in all activities, including business. These developments have also created a demand for managers with the technological and conceptual skills to understand and apply these technologies, and to take advantage of the existing data. “Big Data” is revolutionizing science, politics, entertainment, art, sports, the environment, social life, and business.
