How to fill out the Media Data Navigator?
The Media Data Navigator allows you to organize your thoughts and planning within a framework comprising of eight main strategic domains related to the use of data in the media industry, broadly categorized in 3 sections:
- Two domains on big data vision: ‘data policy’ and ‘practices & workflows’.
- Two domains of execution: ‘data collection’ and ‘control & granularity’.
- Four domains of discovery: ‘business intelligence’, ‘operational intelligence’, ‘virtualization & interaction’ and ‘network security intelligence’.
Within each domain, you will document your strategic ambitions by color-coding the corresponding options according to the following:
- Must Haves are the unavoidable goals, that you must focus on for your business.
- Should Haves are highly desirable topics of consideration that would add measurable value to your business.
- Could Haves are of interest, possibly realizable goals in the existing context in an opportunistic way.
- Won’t Haves are out of scope topics which are either not applicable, or not suitable to focus on at this time.
You will notice there are spaces left at the bottom of most domains to add your own options. The world is rapidly changing and you will probably want to incorporate your own ideas and vision in this framework.
