Marketers Russell Glass and Sean Callahan are big data fans. They believe big data “is changing and should change the way business functions.” They are convinced the benefits of data gathering and analysis are available to companies of all sizes and that every company is relying on them.

In The Big Data-Driven Business: How to Use Big Data to Win Customers, Beat Competitors, and Boost Profits (Wiley, $30), a 214-page hardcover book published this year, they discuss the marketing advantages they believe it offers.
The book is divided into thirteen chapters in which the authors share the examples of Nate Silver, Copernicus, Apple and Blackberry to illustrate their point.
