"Analytics, data mining, and Big Data are hot topics now.  But deploying these tools depends on the questions executives ask, and how they intend to uncover business development risks and opportunities.  How companies frame the problems they're seeking to solve has a great bearing on the value of what they discover.  As we've learned through some notable debacles, 'because we can generate the information' doesn't always yield valuable insights."
