People don't realize the importance of Data Management - Hans Weigand head lector Data at Tilburg University

Why Data Management

Data management should be seen as a key differentiator in business. The true value of data depends on the person and his or her situation – and not on the data directly itself.

Meaning that organizations have to find the balance where to put there efforts into. This may be either data management activities OR value creation with data. And this may be the main challenge for every organization. Successful data management requires an offence and defence tactic.
