Big data

  1. Spring clean data - what is the value of data, where is it being stored and should we keep it? Get rid of any unnecessary data and make sure all you know where all important data is being stored. 
  2. Assign ownership - who is responsible for keeping up to date, IT manager, CEO, operations manager understands what you have and who will manage it.
