As part of our FREE member-only Lunch & Learn Series I am delighted to announce our International guest this month is Scott Howe,  Global CEO and President of Acxiom, a marketing services and technology company focused on managing audiences and delivering personalised customer experiences.

With consumers now deciding how and when they receive information about products and services, the continued rise of digital media, and the complexity of managing Big Data and applying its insights across the entire business, organisations need to take the next step with Big Data management and turning Big Data into actionable information.  Scott says ‘Big Data’ is the next frontier for innovation, competition and productivity and there are companies poised and ready to gain the most”
