Yet again, Jim Harris did it. He encapsulated the historic harsh reality in his article, “Is your data complete and accurate but useless to your business?” on Information Management’s blog.
The comments he received touch on common data management challenges — seeing the “forest for the trees,” distinguishing “information” from “data,” and suggesting a categorization that ranks relevance of data.
However, he didn’t address the opportunities that technological advancements afford businesses. With the innovation of Data Connectors©, companies can now extract and transport data not only from disparate internal silos, but also from unstructured social media sources.
Then, loading this data into a Dynamic Data Networking Environment, allows businesses to couple and associate their data in new ways, affording them opportunities to sift the wheat from the chaff. Availing themselves with the technological advancements, businesses gather insights and formulate new knowledge.
