Three Data Strategy Oversights – Part Two

by Ziko Rajabali April 4, 2017 We’ll cross that bridge when we get there only works if that bridge already exists. When that bridge is a strategic decision, it is a bridge of data. Last week, we talked about unconventional sources of data, like emails. In a way, it was like unearthing a new raw material for the bridge. But what about the refinement of known raw materials? How do we maximize the value of data that comes from conventional sources? In part 1 of this series, we mentioned how sensor measurements are often overlooked in data strategy. Sensors are […]
