Finding and exploiting the value in the tremendous ingestion of data into corporate IT environments is a critical challenge for senior business and IT management today. This webinar will present a sixteen month research project on data value and enterprise productivity. We will outline a preliminary three-factor model of value, discuss the organization of use case studies and field survey research, and outline plans to establish a test environment at SDSC to perform validation and scaling tests of simulated valuation models. Participants in the webinar will come away with a data value model and framework, examples of valuation practices, and an overview of the project and its participants. Opportunities for involvement in the project will be addressed at the end of the webinar.
