Just as information professionals needed to translate their skills from print to digital, so too do we need to reinterpret and reshape our expertise to deliver value in the new world of data.
Data is valued differently, moves differently into and through an organisation, and needs to be licensed differently.
Through our research and work with information teams, we have found two primary challenges pop up repeatedly:
Your source expertise is essential for enabling your organisation to make smart decisions around external data.
This means new licensing terms, different suppliers, and a host of uncertainties in an emerging field.
But most important for most information teams is the urgency of developing and managing ROI of what can be significant costs.
Start with these resources:
Data projects require collaboration, but what's "ours", what's theirs and how do we partner?
Learn, hire or partner? The range of data-related skills organisations need expands all the time.
Information teams have a critical role to play, but it's going to look different in every organisation.
Develop your roadmap for the data-driven future and build the partnerships that will strengthen data projects and strategy moving forward.
