Why Read This Report

Data is only one of three information sources used for decision-making. Personal experience and knowledge and information sourced from colleagues, partners, and customers are the other two. This is the data trust trinity, where decision-makers consider all information sources independently and holistically to determine action plans and next steps in their strategies and tactics. Becoming a data-driven organization means enterprise architects need to consider how data contributes to decision-making by offering different perspectives, breaking through biases, and mitigating the risks of ill-informed decisions. Data decision-makers often ignore data that is not the right quality or is out of step with other information sources. This report breaks down the data trust trinity that helps enterprise architecture (EA) professionals and data governance teams craft data policies, practices, and architectures that improve wider adoption of relevant trusted data for business strategy, planning, and processes.
