The importance of data has changed. As the volume, variety and velocity of the data grew over the past few years, the data has been transformed to provide organizations a broader, more granular and more real-time range of customer, product, operational and market interactions. Today, business leaders see data as a monetization opportunity, and their organizations are embracing data and analytics as the intellectual capital of the modern organization.

The Internet of Things is accelerating this drive towards “data monetization.”  However organizations are quickly learning that you don’t necessary monetize the data as much as you monetize the customer, product, and operational insights derived from the data to create new revenue opportunities: new products, new services, new channels, new markets and new partnerships (see Figure 1).

This week I had the privilege of participating in an event held in Sydney, Australia, with Bill Dawes, publisher and editor of Image & Data Manager, and Chris McLaughlin, Chief Marketing Officer of our Enterprise Content Division. During my presentation, I (hopefully) entertained the audience while advocating the importance of archiving.

Prior to the event, Mr. Dawes had conducted a survey to better understand the challenges that organizations face around managing legacy applications and data. One of the most surprising revelations for me was that some organizations would rather maintain legacy apps, or migrate legacy data, than find a more efficient solution.

You don’t need to teach a child to push harder when confronted with a heavy object. She figures it out. You don’t need to teach a child to pay attention when you shake a rattle.
