Wait. Do you really value your data as a great intellectual asset?
According to a publication in the CMR Journal, i.e. the importance of Intellectual Capital Management in the Knowledge-based Economy is as follows:
“An organization’s intellectual capital is said to be a source of competitive advantage and there is evidence that business success can be partly explained by its intellectual capital”.
This holds true for any active enterprise and it’s thereby essential that you review your data legacy periodically for all the valuable and result-focused analysis it can provide. Here are Top 6 reasons why Data Enrichment could mean greater results for your business too.
