MIT CISR CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS

Sharing Data Within and Beyond the Organization

Data Monetization, Information Technologies

In recent years, MIT CISR research investigated how companies are thinking about interorganizational data sharing. However, in 2021, the MIT CISR Data Advisory Board suggested that we turn our focus inward, and instead investigate challenges and opportunities of data sharing within and across large organizations. The board also suggested that we identify and better understand internal data-sharing capabilities. In 2022 we plan to answer the following research questions:

  • How do data sharing capabilities evolve, and for what purpose(s)?
  • What is the relationship between intraorganizational and interorganizational data sharing?

Methods: This study will draw on interviews with members of the MIT CISR Data Advisory Board and select other data leaders and CXOs. The team will also produce at least one case study or vignette that describes a company that has developed capabilities leading to innovative or transformative sharing of data across the organization.

Seeking: Data leaders and CxOs responsible for or actively working to develop or advance internal data sharing, and companies that have demonstrated success with internal data sharing
