This is a highly readable, thorough, credible guide to the principles of data management. Author Thomas C. Redman covers all the bases, showing readers how to improve data quality, use data to make better decisions and establish management systems that will help nearly any company get the most from its data. Few business subjects have been more abused than data management; a common misconception consigns data management to the IT department. The author shows why the data is, most appropriately, a line rather than a staff responsibility. getAbstract recommends it highly to those whose business may live or die based on the quality of its data management - and that may be your company, whether you realize it yet or not.Was this review helpful?

Very powerful commentary on the role data plays in business. It provides a refreshing take on how you can think of data as an asset and in turn use it to transform how your business delivers value. I would really recommend this to anyone who is open to new ideas and has a sense that data can be an asset to be leveraged as opposed to ignored.Was this review helpful?
