* Excerpt from:  Data Strategy and the Enterprise Data Executive:  Ensuring that Business and IT are in Synch in the Post-Big Data Era by Peter Aiken & Todd Harbour

Shared data structures require programmatic development and evaluation!

  • Reusable data should leverage shared software routines

  • Who makes decisions about the range and scope of common data usage?

  • Organizations fail to recognize the value of data

  • Lack of recognition that data assets need to be reused to be effective

  • Not appreciating the value of documenting data and making it ready for reuse

  • Missing defined data governance, authorities, and processes relative to data and its reuse*

Value Reusable Data Preceding Reusable Code
