This obsession with data might seem absurd at first, but the practice of recording, evaluating and creating is ancient, and for good reasons. Retailers are building troves of data on the observed activity of customers and their next interactions, while organizations from logistics firms, financial services, health care, and other service sectors are striving to fill their own databases full of unique information.
