In the second of this six-part series, technology broadcaster David McClelland talks to Timo Elliott, Global Innovation Evangelist at SAP about the importance of data quality. We find out why CIOs are making more and more decisions driven by insight; and how a pilot scheme in London is gathering data from traffic systems to provide predictive analysis to maintenance crews.
