GrowthToon™: Package Data into Information

by Wayne Simmons and Keary Crawford

The ability for companies to share, store, compute and analyze huge amounts of data can transform the way customers live and work. Data, while valuable, is a commodity that can be replicated by competitors relatively easily. As a result, true market success will be determined by the degree to which companies can convert raw data into information and information into services. Originating from a wide range of computing, transaction, mobile and social media sources, these new information-based services can be platforms for revenue generation and value creation.

Maximize and unlock growth potential by turning your data assets into information and converting that information into knowledge and services:

  • Do you understand how information fits into the value chain of your customers and potential customers?
  • Can you increase raw data with real-time context to help drive better decision-making?
  • Do you have capabilities to organize, synthesize and provision your raw data as information services?
  • Can you convert paper-based data into dynamic and synthesized online information?
  • Do you have the tools to analyze and deliver disparate data sets to find hidden patterns and trends?
  • How do you empower users to convert their internal raw data into business intelligence?
