The ‘not so obvious’ considerations to see value in information management processes

Share

My previous blog post, that addressed finding a middle ground between data strategy investment and cost, highlighted three key areas that businesses tend to ‘waste’ spend on when it comes to their information management strategy. These included managing excess or duplicated data unnecessarily, trying to keep up with the latest in tech and not paying enough attention to the regulatory requirement linked to data management today.

Data strategy investment vs perceived cost – can they meet in the middle?
