    ​“Big data” can help nonprofits predict future behavior precisely and provide an important competitive edge. But how do you prevent information overload and derive these insights efficiently? The key is to make “big data” more manageable. Data must predict things worth predicting, identify problems worth fixing, and opportunities worth pursuing. In this webinar, we discuss why wealth and predictive modeling are so powerful, how they interact, and the importance of considering a holistic approach to your segmentation strategy.
