OMNILINK is running a Data Management Survey again this year after a break of a decade. The aim is to gain valuable insights into Data Management practice not just within the spatial community but also in the wider IT, government and business communities across Australia and New Zealand. Omnilink will also be reviewing changes in practices since the last Survey.
2017 OMNILINK Data Management Survey Best of breed Data Management is the key to a successful business outcome. Establishing an environment where data is easily accessible, fit for purpose and of known quality will ensure a “best value” result for an organisation enabling current, coherent and critical information. Many organisations are dealing with or will soon be faced with the situation of more and more data from more and more sources – sometimes known as Big Data. Our aim is not to deal with Big Data for now – rather gather the data management aspects of your organisation as it stands and some possible aspirations. By Data Management, we refer to the processes and governance around your organisation's handling of data rather than the hardware you employ. We welcome your input to this survey as a way of creating a "where are we now" position – please encourage your colleagues in other organisations to contribute as well so that we get the best possible picture of current Data Management practices. For those who contribute to the survey, we will provide a summary indicating your response in relation to all responses – please complete the details section at the end of the survey. In addition, the name of one lucky respondent who has completed the full Survey will be drawn to win one tablet of choice valued up to $1,000
The 2017 OMNILINK Data Management Survey will run until 30th April 2017.
During the Locate 17 Conference in Sydney we will be showing the live results each day at morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
