A new study from the University of Texas, sponsored by Sybase, finds that even a minimal effort to improve data usability can have a massive impact on revenue.

As the results indicate, the value of investments in IT can vary widely by vertical industry. But even a modest 10 percent improvement in data usability can have huge payoffs that should serve to demonstrate the real value of IT within any organization.
