Goal: Ensure the information needed for good decision making is available.
Description: We live in an era where we constantly are reminded of the importance of data-driven decisions. Today we are exposed to more data than at any other time in the world, and the difficulty often lies in how to create actionable insights. Simply knowing that we have access to data is not sufficient, instead we must have a clear understanding of what data is available to us and how it is organized from the get-go. All too often projects begin without proper inventory of information. This leads to missing critical analyses and uninformed decision making. Additionally, messy information wastes time when a process must be undertaken to normalize the data. Organizing data up front allows Responsible parties to select and analyze data on-demand throughout the Roadmapping process while avoiding pitfalls of missing critical information or unexpected delays. We will assist in identifying the various data-sets available to us in the roadmapping process and assess the data quality to better understand how it may contribute to the technology roadmap.
