If you followed our previous posts you probably know to which extent becoming data-driven is crucial.
Nonetheless, becoming data-driven is easy to say but harder to achieve. But don’t panic, Janice Zdankus and Anthony Delli Colli have shared a good checklist of key principles to develop a great data strategy.
From these, four aspects raised our attention:
Understand the value of your data: how much value they can bring, and how that value can be achieved
Assess your data maturity: to be able to define the best path forward, and get commitment from C-Suite on that plan
Lean to deal with the dispersion of data: both from internal & external sources, by ensuring visibility and discoverability of existing assets
Embrace importance of culture and build trust: on data quality, data accessibility, data security, etc.
And finally, invest in automation to have a strong technical foundation going forward
