By creating a mashup of the different pieces, we can create a co-relation on the initiatives of data strategy and the ROI, with a measurement of true impact on the business. This type of value driven mechanism is needed to realize the true ROI on data strategy.
Monetization from the data strategy efforts can be traced with this method and clearly documented along with trends and timelines. This is not a simple exercise and needs to be implemented with acceptable margin of error for the first few iterations till a maturity model can be established.
Once we have this type of a model, every program of data strategy can be tied to a measurable value and you can predict the tangible ROI and the timeline for the realization with a higher degree of confidence. This type of practice exists in many organizations albeit on a tribal scale and it needs to be enabled and empowered to become an enterprise level strategy.
This type of approach uses all the soft costs and the tangible performance results of the business together and hence it is to be treated with utmost security and governance to protect the competitive advantage of the business. Watch for my expanded whitepaper in the next week on this topic.
