Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 992 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Data Hubs improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 992 standard requirements:
- Does your organization plan to deploy financial transparency and intelligence solutions as part of the open data initiative beyond just publishing the raw financial data on the portal?
- Who would consider opening production systems, as order entry, inventory and customer support, to customers and partners without the ability to strictly limit data access?
- Are your critical databases and application(s) open to direct access from untrusted networks; is your sensitive and/or privacy-related information adequately protected?
- Are the suppliers rights, responsibilities and restrictions clearly established, with regard to viewing, modifying, processing or disseminating the data or information?
- Is your organizations goal to get to a point where data from all departments is available internally (on the Analytics Hub) and externally (on the Open Data Portal)?
- What is the balance between creating a few large data only hubs versus a multitude of hubs organized around providing both data and information for specific topics?
- Does the open-systems customer need to keep large amounts of (infrequently accessed) data at a lower cost than typically provided by storage controllers?
- How easy is it for the data publisher to maintain the data and how tolerant is the current publishing method to allow the publisher to apply changes?
- Do you have a structured, well governed process to introduce new items so that key stakeholders can provide relevant product data at the right time?
- How long will the original data collector/creator/principal investigator retain the right to use the data before opening it up to wider use?

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Data Hubs investments work better.
