Data-driven enterprises do exist today. These organizations capture and reinforce the value of their data by constantly surrounding it with context — describing where it's from, who has access, and how it is being and has been used.

These companies incentivize data analysts, stewards and IT staff to collaborate clearly and efficiently, bringing significant benefits to the entire organization.
