The data-driven organization is the new benchmark for success. Firms that harness data to dictate strategic and tactical decisions companywide make more informed business plans, better optimize operations, improve customer interactions, and provide competitive edge. To achieve these benefits, organizations increasingly see data refinement - transforming raw data from various sources into relevant and actionable information and delivering it through self - service access to any user who needs it - as the path toward success by helping break though immature processes and legacy systems. However, data refinement only functions as well as the strategies and approaches behind it. Organizations that do not understand the right way to embrace refinement will fail to catch up to competitors that have mastered the correct approach.

environments: on-premises, in the cloud or
both. How can you avoid data chaos?
