Everything you need to take your T&E management to the next level is in the data. Your data set from each individual source is powerful, but, consolidating the data amongst the sources is where you get the real power of “Big Data.”  So what should we expect to see in travel data in the future?  Dave M. Lukas, co-owner and VP at Grasp Technologies will discuss the Top 5 Future Trends in Big Data, how to overcome the challenges they present and the benefits in doing so.
