The asset-centric perspective
Information is a critical strategic asset for organizations and must be treated accordingly.
The Business Value of Data
The continuous emergence of data and information-related trends, both in the public and in the private sector, drives the need to recognize and manage data as a strategic asset and leads to an increased demand for data management.
The asset-centric perspective is a proactive approach that fully acknowledges this situation and recognizes the need for a clearly defined data strategy that is closely integrated with the overall organizational strategy. When information becomes widely recognized as part of the lifeblood of the organization, the need to improve its management is acknowledged, and the organization can even rethink the ways in which data can be put to use.
