Businesses are racing to keep up with advances in this technology-based revolution, where all information is valuable, from sources and inventory to partnerships and customer profiles. When something has value, we’ll always find a way to collect it; but of course there’s more to it than that. We need to be able to put the valuable commodity to good use.

Application developers are rushing in with answers. So many, in fact, that app usage has increased in the US by 52% between June 2013 and June 2014 alone.
