Information is most valuable — when delivered on time

  • When it comes to applying economics to the most valuable asset in the enterprise, timely availability of the relevant information is vital. The same information may not be as applicable if it is presented outside the critical time window without context. For example, knowing where your favorite restaurant is located becomes meaningful when you are hungry. There are multiple time dimensions when it comes to the systemic delivery of information through various channels — including desktop devices of record, mobile BYOD devices of engagement and of course, printers.

Can Infonomics be a taxing proposition? I wonder.

It’s that time of the year again. United States residents are filing their annual tax reports. We compute the taxes that ought to have been paid, make additional payments or receive refunds. We apply the nation’s laws to determine the appropriate taxes for the sale, purchase and possession of assets.

 

As I go through this exercise myself, I am thinking about the most valuable asset in the enterprise—Information. This post on Infonomics beginning at home projects financial value being associated with data that we "own." Will this very data become a taxable asset in the future? I wonder.

From the Desk of Big Data – Infonomics begins at home

Hello Enterprise IT. This is Data.

 

What’s in a name? I used to make light of this, and not attribute much significance to my most primitive forms, such as a “name.” Then I came across the principle of Infonomics – applying economics to information – as originated by Douglas Laney, Gartner Research VP. This principle opens up the possibility of enterprises endowing me with tangible value, proper context, and treating me like they would other assets. This is great! However, I now realize it’s not just enterprises – but individuals such as yourself – who must do add value to me as well. Jessica Leber asserts this in A Stock Exchange for your Data based upon the white paper by Bernardo Huberman, Senior Fellow at HP Labs.
