Q: How do you turn data into information the enterprise can use?
A: To be truly successful, make sure you’re creating knowledge that business users actually use (because they deem it important), and that IT drives the ability to share information. IT must ensure that knowledge sharing is part of the enterprise culture. And the creation of knowledge can’t be an ad hoc event, but something that is continually updated and improved.
