I love the quote "In the age of data, data is everywhere, even if they don't tell the whole story; Decision-makers want numbers, even if they don't understand them; everyone likes pictures!"

As the amount of data increases, there is less time to "understand" it. Interactive data visualization tools are going to get increasingly popular - you already see Dashboards popping up everywhere.

When qualitative data is important, there is great risk of turning it into quantitative data just so decision makers can rationalize the decisions they make. Education is a prime example of such a field. Is that not why we have MCQs?
 
Wonderful comment:) why do we have MCQs? Because they seem to be reliable of not always valid.
