Data is an asset in its own right, requiring a strategic approach to its collection, management and use.
In the same way that the asset management strategy defines the plans and policies established to optimise the use of assets to maximise their value to the business, the purpose of an Asset Information Strategy is to establish a single, organisation-wide approach to managing the information that supports asset management functions.
Taking a strategic, holistic view helps avoid the creation of departmental silos and allows for greater benefits to be secured, such as a common toolset, shared quality monitoring and consistent quality and reporting metrics. Without an Asset Information Strategy, asset-intensive organisations may suffer from poor data quality, duplication, data inconsistencies, lack of confidence in reporting, lack of accountability and a general perception that data is a liability rather than an asset.
