Britt Technology Impact Series: Mobile
The Britt Technology Impact Series (BTIS) provides MBA candidates and the Tuck and Dartmouth communities with insights into how changes in technology affect individuals, impact enterprises and reshape industries.

Current Series: Information Overload: Capitalizing on Big Data
Big Data is the idea that the amount of information is stretching beyond our ability to manage it and make use of it. The technology that underpins modern society — from smartphones to social platforms to supply-chain networks — is driving an unparalleled increase in data. About 90 percent of information in the world today was created in the past two years, according to IBM. This rapid growth makes clear that new tools are needed to capture, analyze use and capitalize on huge sets of data.
