Unlock the value of data

Data Value Scorecard

A measure of companies' efforts to unlock the value of data.

Companies have spent the past two decades collecting nearly limitless amounts of data. Data leaders are now under pressure to monetize that captured data and show a meaningful return on the investments (ROI) made.Data is immensely valuable for businesses, but many are learning the hard way that it requires more than a few smart hires and flashy data tools. Instead, it requires building a solid foundation in the form of data architecture that enables users across the business to generate insights and lead to monetization.


The Data Value Scorecard provides a measure of companies' efforts to unlock the value of data.
