Analysing data and the Eureka moment
Conclusion: Reports on the findings from CIO surveysconsistently highlight management’s imperative to transform stored business data into wisdom. What the survey reports do not make clear though is how wisdom, or the Eureka moment, can be recognised. Also missing from the reports is an explanation of how skilled IT and business professionals can achieve the transformation, so management can act on the wisdom.
