Information Sharing Isn’t Data Management

From Dale Meyerrose, US associate director of national intelligence, this clearly stated piece about the importance of an integrated metadata strategy for the enterprise. My only problem is he seems to confuse information sharing with data management. If you keep your eye just on the structured databases, the metadata task is easier, but less effective. And you miss the colouring and insight from more freely constructed information objects.

There are some great tools which make information sharing much easier, but most businesses do not encourage employees to share best practices and reuse existing knowledge
