See beyond to scale up your impact
Keep in mind that the data era is customer-centric: its true value lies in understanding people and processes in order to cover emerging needs and improve the user experience. Hence, you should adopt an open perspective to envision emerging trends and integrate new solutions for continuous improvement. This implies that, when considering data flows, you should not only think about your own internal data governance but also about how you could increase your relevance by connecting to the greater ecosystem of which your company is a part.
Therefore, although you should always control the integrity and safety of your data, that doesn’t mean exclusivity. Indeed, the greatest ideas come from sharing knowledge within the context of shared purposes.
An inspiring case is the story of manufacturing company John Deere which has developed a farming platform that integrates smart machine, user and market data to help agricultural producers optimize their operation and manage risks. In the health care industry, a good example of data-driven innovative service comes in the form of Optum, which links claims related to drug usage and effectiveness to give feedback so that health care providers can improve their products and services. In both cases, data flows have enabled different agents to connect across industries to improve their mutual experiences.
