This book is essential reading for those wanting to understand the role of big data and business analytics in management decision making.

Professor Michael D. Myers
University of Auckland Business School, Australia

This is a book for real people who have to make decisions and who want to use the best technology and data analytics available today. You do not need to be a technologist to make sense of this book. The many useful charts and diagrams, the recommended additional readings, insightful quotations that give voice to managers’ experiences in working with big data to make decisions, and summaries of key learning for each chapter all lend themselves to making the learning experience easier and more applicable. Most importantly, I think it is a book that will make you want to learn and read more on this critically important topic.
