Knowledge Scientists: Unlocking the data-driven organization

  title={Knowledge Scientists: Unlocking the data-driven organization},
  author={G. Fletcher and Paul T. Groth and Juan Sequeda},
Organizations across all sectors are increasingly undergoing deep transformation and restructuring towards data-driven operations. The central role of data highlights the need for reliable and clean data. Unreliable, erroneous, and incomplete data lead to critical bottlenecks in processing pipelines and, ultimately, service failures, which are disastrous for the competitive performance of the organization. Given its central importance, those organizations which recognize and react to the need…
