My Golf, Big Data and the Cloud

Monday July 25th, 2016

The reason why I’m blogging about this is because I see a strong similarity between my golf aspiration and the frenzy around big data, open source and cloud. My starting premise has always been – Enterprises with good information management practices will leverage data better, regardless of what technology comes before them. But like bad… Read More »

What would you have done differently?

Tuesday April 12th, 2016

The Chief Data Officer – Managing the Value of Data

Friday March 21st, 2014

I have been observing the evolution of the Chief Data Officer (CDO) role and seen it’s slow transformation from caretaker of data governance, infrastructure and  its slow progress towards a role more focused on realising value from the data assets of the company. This has been a slow movement but has recently been in the… Read More »

Thursday October 31st, 2013

The possibilities offered by the new analytic environments are just staggering.  However, as a former Head of Business Analytical services for a number of large institutions, I can appreciate the significant barriers that need to be overcome to realise these opportunities.  A major barrier is behavioural – failing fast is an essential outcome of a… Read More »
