What does it mean by data, in this particular quote? In my opinion, it's not limited to the figures and quantitative information. Management, especially marketing, receives huge and continuous information through subjective or qualitative means. What do you think about data in marketing? Should we stick to its definition or think beyond that while managing our marketing activities in today's technology-driven environment?

    #1 Great understanding Donna-Luisa! In my opinion, figure-work doesn't present the reality as whole, as some people think it does. Your qualitative characteristics play a more important role to judge and decide. So, data is a support, not a base to your action and thinking.

    Qamar Ali Khan, I always think beyond the present practices. Nuances in culture and people can change and be un-noticed and not read or interpreted by those collecting data.... Nice point raised!
