According to a study by MIT, companies who embrace digital technologies are not only able to find the edge that is required to stay ahead in today’s competitive market but are also likely to be 26% more profitable compared to their peers.
However, research suggests that one of the biggest challenges that risk managers face is being able to extract and gain access to reliable data sources in their organisations, to support risk analysis and help them make more informed decisions.
