Deborah Briggs, Vice President EHS, Security and Facilities with Polaris Industries, Inc., describes the challenges of 'big data' management and how she focuses on what's important.

"There's data everywhere...and you get into data overload. But what is it telling us, and how does that translate into actions that we can take to improve? You can get caught up in the noise...It's important to figure out how do you utilize that data, and that can be challenging when there's so much of it."
