It’s Time to Invest in Internal Data Sharing

In this audio edition of the May 2023 research briefing, hear how top-performing organizations’ internal data sharing is significantly more advanced than that of bottom performers.
By Randy V. Bradley, Barbara H. Wixom, and Cynthia M. Beath

LISTEN TO THE RESEARCH

Organizations with advanced internal data sharing—the ability to easily exchange data assets enterprise-wide—benefit from greater data monetization returns and a lower cost to serve data assets to the organization’s data consumers. This briefing describes three requirements that enable internal data sharing: (1) creating broadly relevant liquid data assets, (2) becoming proficient in both data monetization and cost-to-serve measurement, and (3) developing a highly engaged data democracy. The requirements are illustrated using examples from Amcor, FEMSA, Fidelity Investments, and Scentre Group.
