Hi thanks for the reply. This whole conversation has been
provoking. As I write this I am at 30k feet having just finished
preface and chapter one to Aiken and Harbour's book, Data Strategy
Rise of the Enterprise Data Executive. The authors talk about "why"
being the foundation of an organizations overall strategy. It is
understanding the strategic needs of the org, beyond working groups
tribal knowledge, that we can begin to ask the "what" and
Specifically, the authors point to tool acquisition as a necessity
long term (as the life cycle matures). But often orgs acquire tools
the discipline to use them.
Anyway, great talk by Robert Seiner, I appreciate his comments,
comments and everyone who shared their thoughts on this thread.
