As organizations become more and more data-driven, it becomes progressively more important to set up a healthy and productive way to manage data.

Here are 4 major steps to follow to help you improve on this:

1. Data Management

2. Data Security

3. Data Quality

4. The Team

-----

1.

Data management is the “administrative process by which the required data is acquired, validated, stored, protected, and processed, and by which its accessibility, reliability, and timeliness is ensured to satisfy the needs of the data users.”Basic pillars are: provisioning, protection, replication and recovery.Evaluate data before engaging in big data analytics.Have a maintenance plan.
2.

Data security must be prioritized by any organization to enable it to function properly and for operations to flow efficiently. It also provides stockholders and executive teams peace of mind of knowing that the information they have stored in their servers will not be easily exploited by hackers or cyber-criminals.
3.

A study conducted by Experian Data Quality shows that outstanding data quality has a direct correlation to an increase in company profits. 4 steps to reduce incidence of human error (cited by 65 percent of organizations to be the main cause of data problems): Identify data entry points, train staff, Automated verification, clean data over time.
4.

Hire a competent team of professionals who know their roles very well: data management supervisor, data entry staff, data analyst, quality and training staff

Google changes Internet Search (Again)! | Industry, Manufacturing, Etc... | Scoop.it
Online search could be set to change forever as Google changes the focus of its results from popularity to factual accuracy.A white paper this month outlined the company’s vision for Knowledge Based Trust algorithms which would compare search terms against their 1.6 billion fact Knowledge Vault for accuracy.The Knowledge Vault is a machine-built database of facts – the web-crawling software robots (generally known as bots, or specifically in Google’s case, Googlebots) which Google sends out to i

Although broadly defined, Google's new way of searching based on factual information rather than popularity may be a form of censorship. As the article explains, Google's automated bots will gain complete control over what is deemed factual and remove their current system of ranking by popularity. Popularity certainly has its problems, yet the issues that may be caused from an automated robot mis-reading may have larger issues when Google claims its information is a factual representation of a person or company.

“WHEN IT COMES TO SOLVING PROBLEMS, CONNECTEDNESS IS A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD”
Unfortunately, it turns out that inducing more collaboration may hinder the most important part of problem-solving: actually solving the problem. While connecting employees does increase the ability to gather facts during the early stages of tackling a problem, it also inhibits the ability to analyze those facts and find a solution, a team of Boston researchers reports.

The rate of return on assets of US firms is only one quarter of what it was in 1965. Business organizations are fewer and less able to seize the economic benefits of their actions. In a technology-enabled world in which innovation is key, it’s with great heartbreak that only 11 percent of employees are passionate about their work. It is also a major performance problem for businesses that depend on employee passion for imagination and innovation.
