Abstract

Clearly organizations are collecting, creating, and exchanging more and more data. They have a vested interest, and increasingly realized interest, in tapping the potential of this data to increase revenue, to decrease costs, and to help them manage risks. However, this requires a different way of thinking and a maturity of data management that many organizations don’t yet have and must grow over time. Organizations can make a fair amount of progress in specific data management domains from grassroots efforts and IT-driven efforts, but organizations usually reach a point where to really move forward, to make that quantum leap of realizing the benefits from their data, business and IT need to collaborate, think about data as an asset and a business enabler, and apply some degree of discipline to define how to:
  • Move the data maturity of the organization forward and

  • Coordinate existing data-related projects to ensure they support each other, all while

  • Furthering the business goals of the organization
