Information as a Second Language (I2L)Gartner Research

My colleague Valerie Logan just published Information as a Second Language: Enabling Data Literacy for Digital Society.

Digital society demands of its citizens data literacy, developed for competitive advantage and agility. Data and analytics leaders must follow the example of English as a second language (ESL) and treat information as the new second language of business, government, communities and our lives.

This is a really nice piece that explores a different way of behaving, operating, and leveraging data and analytics to improve (business) outcomes.  I am confident that if you read this note, you will find yourself raising your eye brow several times, and nodding even more.  This is a great position to take by Valerie.  I am sure we will see more interesting ideas from her soon.

While you can “rate” this note online, please do send specific feedback to the author as well. We crave direct feedback on how to improve our work. Thanks.
