Becoming a data-driven Organisation
DATA is the foundation of any market transformation during the digital era we are part of. Companies are expected to reorient themselves or to disappear. However, following assessments by Gartner and Forrester during the past two years, only a small fraction of all enterprises are already adequately addressing the handling of data.
Yet, business leaders are becoming aware of the topic. They recognize the increasing relevance of data, and the need to act now. Those leaders will welcome this book as it guides them through the first steps in their journey towards a data-driven organisation.
What you get with this book
This book aims at bringing the topic of Data and its commercial usage to the attention of you as a decision maker. It encourages you to get engaged, by explaining in a non-technical way what data comprises, which opportunities wait to get discovered and, most importantly, how to prepare and launch the introduction of a Data Office in your organisation.
