Data Asset Management

Data is referred to as the new gold. Or named an asset for an organization. That means that data can no longer just be the output of a business process. It needs to be a strategically managed objective for the organization. It needs to be planned, designed, built, maintained & optimized, but also archived/removed to continuously build the value. These are the 6 phases of the lifecycle.

This can be achieved with the Data Asset Management Lifecycle. One half of the journey is the planning and realization/ acquisition of the data asset. The other half is the actual usage and improvement of the data asset.
