Big data has become an important tool in the enterprise’s survival toolkit as it continues to adapt to the challenges brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

According to a survey from analytics platform provider Sisense, businesses are leaning on analytics for business insights and efficiencies more than they did pre-COVID-19.
