My colleague Doug Laney just published the Generally Accepted Information Principles for Improved Information Asset Management.
Data and analytics leaders should draw on established asset management practices in establishing a set of practicable information tenets. This research will help promote the treatment of information as a true asset, leading to its improved utility.
This is a particularly interesting note given the pending publication of a book by Doug: Infonomics. I had blogged a while ago about how t he principlines outlined in the note (and explore more fully in the book) could help you develop a second set of books to help inform smarter data and analytics investment decisions.
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.
