Data is very important in every business. It's the raw source of information! There are actually many tools in gathering data. Statisticians know the better ones. Haha! Kidding aside, IT help a lot. Without it, companies will have difficulties in gathering all the data and information needed. Everybody's thankful of technology! Who isn't, anyway?
