If harnessed in the right way this data can help enterprises design their products better. Using this treasure of user data enterprises can also come closer to their employees which can create a well functioning organization. However the amount of data available is mind boggling and companies have a tough time sifting through it to make sense of it. "In the past few years there has been a huge growth in the volume of structured and unstructured data. With the unstructured information being available through text, audio and video files, companies are finding it difficult to sift through the data," says Mohan Kumar, CEO and co-founder of Trendwise Analytics, a big data startup that helps enterprises get a meaningful understanding of the data.
