A data strategy checklist for the journey to the data-driven enterprise

Data is clearly the foundation of digitalization. However, insufficient transparency is a breeding ground for a lack of trust in corporate data, hindering effective implementation of compliance and data protection regulations.

A data strategy defines what it means to treat data as an asset, to drive innovation through data and to establish a data culture. But how do you find the right vision and roadmap to use information to your competitive advantage and support enterprise goals? How can the requirements of data producers and data consumers be synchronized, and the feasibility of digital use cases based on trustworthy data ensured?

This study explores the following questions

•  What are the main data challenges in terms of content, organization and technology in companies?
•  Which approaches are used to improve the handling and use of data? What should be taken into account?
•  What benefits have already been achieved by implementing these approaches?
•  Which conceptual, architectural and technological measures have been implemented/are planned?
