From a production-driven to an information-centric organisation
May 6, 2014
Information-centric companies have a culture that relies on data that is stored, analysed and visualised where these results form an integral part in strategic decision-making. So, at least one precondition to become an information-centric company is a cultural shift that allows data and the tools to analyse and visualise the data to be accessible to large groups within organisations in combination with business decision-making based on facts instead of gut feeling, as over 1/3 of all managers still do.
Big data is useless if you are not able to visualize all the involved data in a meaningful and understandable manner. There are 1000s of different types of graphs that you can use to make the data understandable. Be open for different graphs instead of a pie chart. When changing your organisation, change the metrics and graphs as well and do not stick with meaningless pie charts that are difficult to read.
