Eric Goh, managing director of EMC Singapore, added that as the enormity and potential of the digital universe grows, businesses will have greater opportunities to analyse new streams of data and gain more value from the data they already have.

Creating a smart nation begins with the ability of the nation to extract greater value from the intelligence provided by data. IT departments will be challenged to find innovative ways to enable a smarter work culture," he said.
