As yet another report, from KPMG this time, shows that businesses still aren't managing their data effectively, Gartner suggests that the number of chief data officers is likely to grow rapidly, enabling companies to get to grips with challenges like predictive business performance metrics as well as security and fraud detection. A LinkedIn survey, too, shows that most of the skills currently in highest demand are information or intelligence or data related. Information professionals wondering how to contribute their skills in all this could take a lead from IFLA's concern about the intellectual property aspects of text and data mining, or from the scientific community, where University College London and Elsevier have just launched a Big Data Institute.
