The authors advocate attention to smart data strategy as anorganizing element of enterprise performance optimization. They believe that “smart data” as a corporate prioritycould revolutionize government or commercial enterprise performancemuch like “six sigma” or “total quality” asorganizing paradigms have done in the past.  This revolutionhas not yet taken place because data historically resides in theprovince of the information resources organization.  Solutionsthat render data smart are articulated in “technoid”terms versus the language of the board room.  While books suchas Adaptive Information by Pollock and Hodgson ably describethe current state of the art, their necessarily technical tone isnot conducive to corporate or agency wide qualitative change.

From the Back Cover:

A clear, actionable approach to employing an enterprise-widesmart data strategy

“Smart data” is the combination of interoperablecharacteristics in a system of data exchange that is agreed upon bythe user community. It enhances and optimizes enterpriseperformance, enables more timely and responsive decision-making,and lowers IT costs. Smart Data provides a practicalframework for this essential strategy, equipping the reader withthe necessary tools to maximize the wealth of information in theircorporate databases. James George and James Rodger persuasivelyaddress the problem of “data whose life cycle often outlaststhe information technology (IT) paradigm under which it wascreated,” paving the way for IT to once again propel anorganization’s advancement. The authors:

  • Make smart data strategy explicit and understandable, closingthe knowledge gap between enterprise executives and enablingtechnologists
  • Identify the elements essential to optimizing performance,explain how to overcome the barriers, and present visionary ideasto aid in implementatio
  • Provide a detailed plan that includes roles, responsibilities,and accountabilit
  • Employ two types of case studies—scientific/academic andanecdotal/programs—to support and illustrate theauthors’ idea
  • Engineer high-impact results through collaboration betweenexecutives, operations management, and technologist
  • Help government enterprise executives to improve their abilityto achieve faster result
  • Show commercial enterprise participants how to maximize theirdemonstrated value to government enterprise as members of thesupply chain of prime contractors, subcontractors, andsuppliers

Government executives, such as CIOs and managers of majorinformation systems, will find tremendous value in SmartData, as will their counterparts in the commercial sector.CEOs, CTOs, and other senior executives interested in maximizingthe value of information in their corporate databases can alsobenefit from this work. In addition, MBA students as well asproject management and IT students will appreciate discovering theunique performance improvement advantages that the adoption of asmart data strategy provides.
