In Chapter seven (7), we have learned from “The Path to Information Value” that 70% (seventy percent) of managers and executives say data are “extremely important” for creating competitive advantage.
In addition, it is implied by the authors that, “The key, of course, is knowing which data matter, who within a company needs them, and finding ways to get that data into users’ hands.”
Important: Before you respond to the following discussion topic this week, you will need to think about and select a large company to frame the upcoming two Milestone papers and ultimately your Final Paper. We will review the requirements for those papers next week in Week3. Until then, for your Final paper, you will be required to act as a newly hired Chief Information Governance Offer (CIGO) at a large company and industry of your choice. This does not have to be a REAL company, it can be fictitious, however you must select an industry that interests you. For example, healthcare, banking, etc.
Now, based on the company you select for your Final Paper, discuss 1) the data that matters to the executives in that industry, 2) who, within that industry, needs that data, and 3) some methods for ensuring that the critical data gets into the users’ hands.
