Data is not information, information is not knowledge, knowledge is not understanding, understanding is not wisdom – Clifford Stoll

This is a simple concept to understand. Let us assume the amount of time we spend on the internet, amount of data we download, how we fill every single hard disk we have and yet complain we need more. Yes, the number of blogs out there are plenty, every day we will never be able to read so much of content that is present in the open world. We need to pick and make conscious choices of what we want to read and make plenty of the given time.

Now, think about the same concept inside our organizations. I discussed this concept in a different way in my previous post around paralysis by analysis. As decision makers if we need to analyze something we need to be able to pick the anomalies from the overdose of data that exists inside our Data warehouse. Be focused is the most important concept I would like to drive here.

Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense – Gertrude Stein
