Modern Finance in the Digital Age: Measure and Respond Best Practices


Leveraging big data and social media is crucial not only in order for businesses to remain relevant and competitive in today’s global marketplace, but also in order to develop and maintain a new successful business model capable of responding quickly to market behaviors. Businesses need to respond to these powerful and important sources of data found within the “third platform” of online social interaction, cloud technology, mobility of customers, and information sharing. This digital data, combined with intangible assets, represent an increasingly important source of value for companies. The Measure and Respond Best Practices Method effectively processes a vast amount of digital information, aiding in the ongoing development of business plans that utilize these new intangible assets, allowing the user to create a business model that is holistic in its approach to managing and utilizing third platform information.

Decision-making processes can then be accomplished using evidence-based information pulled from high-quality data.
