How Viability is Driving Better Outcomes

PROS Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PRO):

businesses across many industries. The first wave of big data

data – volume, variety and velocity. It’s now time to shift the
conversation to a new “V” – viability – to determine which data
elements actually produce better outcomes and will help companies
reap long-term rewards from their big data.
