AARP (formerly the American Association of Retired Persons) currently provides 38 million Americans over age 50 with benefits, discounts, information, and advocacy — and the non-profit organization expects aging Baby Boomers to swell its membership rolls to 70 million by 2015. AARP needed a way to gather, integrate and leverage ever more data in the present while preparing for dramatic growth in the near future.
