What are the biggest changes you see happening in your industry?
Information Management is an area that is ever exploding. This calls for preparedness by every single person in the planet since we all create, disseminate and use information. Of more concern is the question of DATA given that INFORMATION is derived from it. Data Reliability which depends on the accuracy, up-to-dateness and other essential factors, is going to be key in driving the BIG FORCE which is BIG DATA.
Of greatest challenge are the social media platforms- the manner in which organisation are using them- are they in control of the data transacted in such platform? How many organisations have comprehensive policies that drive/ guide those who use it within their platform? How many curate data (as a strategy) for effective use / application in enhancing their services
What opportunities and challenges will these changes bring about?
With the need to tackle the BIG DATA in a way that it will bring benefits to humanity, there is need to dig deeper into the current DATA scenario and provide guidelines into DATA CREATION, STORAGE (not hoarding), PROCESSING (Analysis- here we have to consider the role of analytics such as Hadoop, etc.
At the moment, we are operating in a geographical setup where Data Scientists are very rare and thus getting expertise in this area is not easy.

of businesses has just started making sense to a organisations- government and private organisations- and thus, there is need to optimise the evagelization of Data’s role in the organisation business.
