Interesting blog Rob. Thanks.

When you say that the problem is continual growth of information - are you talking about information created by the organisation itself (and its customers and suppliers)? Or are you referring to the 'rocket' of information globally?

Either way, isn't the vast majority of this growth going to be in unstructured data? If this is so then surely the Information Management techniques you hint at are all about either a) directly mining unstructured data realtime or b) developing an ETL technology capability to extract structured data/information from the unstructured data.

Are we dealing with complexity or chaos?

Thanks for the question. In my view, it doesn't matter where the information sits as long as it is relevant to the business. More importantly, I also think that it doesn't matter whether the data is structured or unstructured, it is important. See my latest post for the foundations of a taxonomy!
