    This book offers a lot of solid guidance on data quality management and product development from a seasoned expert with 30 years experience. Judging by the number of bookmarks, chapters three (assessing and improving data quality) and chapter four (making decisions) were the best value, and chapter six (bringing data to the market place) was the weakest. The book ends with a nice 100 day plan bringing it all together.

    Practical, straightforward information management manual This is a highly readable, thorough, credible guide to the principles of data management. Author Thomas C. Redman covers all the bases, showing readers how to improve data quality, use data to make better decisions and establish management systems that will help nearly any company get the most from its data. Few business subjects have been more abused than data management; a common misconception consigns data management to the IT department Practical, straightforward information management manual This is a highly readable, thorough, credible guide to the principles of data management. Author Thomas C. Redman covers all the bases, showing readers how to improve data quality, use data to make better decisions and establish management systems that will help nearly any company get the most from its data. Few business subjects have been more abused than data management; a common misconception consigns data management to the IT department. The author shows why the data is, most appropriately, a line rather than a staff responsibility. getAbstract recommends it highly to those whose business may live or die based on the quality of its data management – and that may be your company, whether you realize it yet or not.

    ¿Qué aprendí de este libro? La información es el activo más importante para una empresa. Muchas empresas aún no han visualizado el potencial para la toma de decisiones que tiene la información; por ello le prestan poca importancia a su mantenimiento, y en especial, a la calidad con la que se recopila.

    Re-read after starting a new job. There are good fundamentals in here, but otherwise felt very dated. Likely not helpful to anyone who started their careers in the 2010s because all the examples are from the 1990's and early 2000's. Re-read after starting a new job.

    Kinda ok. Good intro book to business perspective of data/info and data management. I expected more of an analytic-driven and bit more technical book. Guessed wrong. Skimmer.
