Accessibility to big data
For some time now, big data has been a thing. Many tech companies have benefited from the ability to process consumer the data and other information related to consumer behavior. In fact, today many companies are relying on data for their growth plans. Today, we have tech companies which process information and sell to other companies. For many small companies, they have not had a chance to enjoy access to big data due to limitations related to costs, technology, and manpower.
Paul Mampilly is predicting that in 2019, we will see more businesses access big data. He predicts that there will be changes whereby even middle-sized and smaller businesses will manage to obtain information which previously has been a prerogative of large companies. The impact will be that there will be changes in how businesses approach consumers. Small companies will be able to compete aggressively with large companies for the same customer base. Paul Mampilly believes that big data will get even bigger in 2019 and highly accessible to small businesses.

Krishen Iyer is mostly known for his investments in medical insurance. The San Diego State Public Administration Major graduate even started his own underwriting company. My Premium Insurance Company which he started in 2009 had the honor of being listed amongst the Inc. 5000.

What makes it more intriguing is his academic background in public administration, handling insurance or business solutions indicates a versatile, well-read and calculating individual as shown in the his profile here.
For a person with a background of urban planning, the logical choice of investment would have been in real estate or infrastructure. Krishen Iyer debunks the myth surrounding the nexus of specializing in a field and subsequently investing in that area. The fact that he has managed to steer his companies to profitability, shearing off-market share from traditionally established companies displays a business genius.

In a world where everyone is bombarded with adverts from online platforms, apps, mainstream media, billboards, it actually would appear to defeat logic to start a company that would offer what’s already there.
The logic, however, is certain products or businesses require specific tailor-made marketing to increase their customer base. Cases in point, technical products that may not enjoy the universal understanding of use or modus operandi have difficulties penetrating the market. Certain companies would equally not equally the financial muscles of their competitors nor have a delivering marketing department. Krishen Management Benefits offers these solutions. What makes Krishen Iyer firm so efficient is their use of analytics, to predict trends. They operate on using leads to get potential clients for companies. This approach is revolutionary and has high success rates as opposed to the traditional marketing techniques.
