Sharing knowledge, or just sharing data?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Advances in technology have made sharing data—even Big Data—
very much easier, but does sharing data by itself achieve anything?
There is a lack of research into exactly how using analytics pays off and
into what needs to be taken into account in order to run an effective
analytics program. This chapter examines some of the issues that have
to be addressed if analytics and big data are to have a positive effect on
organizational performance by reviewing the published literature and
taking specific examples from the domain of oil and gas exploration
and production. The message overall is that technology is not enough;
that knowledge needs to be shared as well as data; and that people,
processes, structure, and technology together make up a whole that is
much greater than the sum of its parts. Thus, the chapter acts in part
as an antidote to the hype that is sometimes written, especially by software
vendors, about analytics and Big Data.
