1. Contextualize your data before it’s too late!
Ensure that data contextualization is included in your digital transformation roadmap from the start or you will face great inefficiencies in the future.
2. Align your data models and avoid the data swamp!
Consistent data modelling strategies are the most efficient way to enable your organization to exploit complex data analytics applications which will require data from many sources.
3. The value lies with the user, not the structure
Contextualizing data serves the sole purpose of easing the work of the end user, would he be an operator, an engineer or a manager. Understand your audience, the engineering processes, the goals and the current practices to design a meaningful data model.
