From Big Data To Meaningful Information
December 11, 2012 | 11:00 am PST, 2:00 pm EST

The ability to quickly analyze big data has a central impact on many mission-critical functions: risk calculation... price optimization... customer experience... social learning...

Three Tips for Measuring Voice in the Sea of Big Data

Big data is a hot topic in business IT today. But while the term is ubiquitous in today's business and IT publications, it has proved difficult for many companies to understand what big data actually means for them. Individual companies are working to understand what big data sources will be valuable to them, and what the nature of that value is. They are struggling to fully understand what big data sources they already have, what additional sources they need, and how to realize the value of the data in each source.

At the heart of these efforts is the realization that their businesses cannot remain competitive without soliciting and incorporating feedback from all customer sources.

Best Practices in Knowledge Management

KNOW THIS:  KNOWLEDGE IS ELUSIVE
 
Many knowledge management gurus will tell you that knowledge cannot be "managed," in the typical sense. Data can be managed. Information can be managed. But "knowledge" is in some kind of fourth dimension, outside of the reach of control.
 
Maybe it's a semantic argument. But there are plenty of people out there who are active knowledge managers--some with business cards that say so!--and spend their days managing their organizations' knowledge just fine, thank you very much.
 
But there IS a point to the pundits' argument: Knowledge is not easy to put your finger on. It's an ethereal thing; it's not simply data, and it's not simply "what's in people's heads" either. It's both. So to conduct knowledge management requires a deep understanding of the business AND the workers who walk in and walk out of your buildings every day.
 
The next KMWorld White Paper--"Best Practices in Knowledge Management"--will try to unravel that knot. If you have a way to address it, please contact:
