Harvesting External Data: The Potential of Digital Data Streams
Harvesting External Data: The Potential of Digital Data Streams is the most recent research sponsored by the SIM's Advanced Practices Council. The report explains how to acquire, understand and use real-time digitally generated data for new value creation opportunities through digital data stream generation and aggregation as well as services, efficiency and analytics. Authors Gabe Piccoli and Federico Pigni also explore why a firm needs capabilities in datasets, tollsets, skillsets and mindsets to exploit a digital data stream strategy. They end with recommendations for developing the needed skills, examining current opportunities, creating digital data streams when opportunities arise, and begin to alert to the digital data streams you already have.
