Real-Time Versus "Right-Time" Decision Making: A New Competitive Advantage


In this day and age, the ability for a company to utilize information quickly and effectively is more important than ever before. But faster access to increasingly large amounts of data doesn’t always mean that good real-time decisions are being made.
