Cloud Data Report: Create an Enterprise Data Strategy

Cloud Data Report: Create an Enterprise Data Strategy

CREATING AN ENTERPRISE data strategy is not for the faint of heart. It first requires a commitment from the top and an acknowledgment that data is a corporate asset that must be managed and protected like any other asset.
