It can be said the 80% of executives rely on the information system. The number of unstructured data is growing as well. Unstructured information is challenging for several reasons. The executives cannot deny the value of unstructured data, it can be used in many steps. Along with that, any company needs information that does not cost much. The low-cost information is equally important for the executives. The information contains a lot of storage therefore the executives need to search for data that will take less space. Big data can make an organization beneficial thus executives prefer the use of big data (Smallwood, 2019). Information that helps to make managerial decisions is also important. Models can be developed on the basis of that information. Data may carry challenges and threats so the executives should not use all the information they collect. These models can analyze the past, present, and future of a company. Executives are considered to be experts in this field thus they need to filter information before using it in any project. The future of a company can be determined based on information and models can be used for a different purpose. The executives who are responsible to handle the information should analyze how much space the information will take. The use of the information will also be decided by the employees. The cost that a company might have to bear for unstructured information should be calculated. The accesses of information should be saved in details otherwise the company will face trouble finding valuable data. The chapter discussed the importance of information governance.People who need those dataThe mangers within the company need to know access to data more than anyone else. Information governors are recruited to filter the data. They decide which data will be used in developing models and which one information will be deleted. The employees of an organization and customers need data for various reasons. Every member who is involved with the information environment needs data as the future of the company depends on those (Ning, Zhang, Zhang & Zhang, 2018). Data analytics are other experienced people who handle the analyzing process of information. Employees are hired to calculate the cost of information, they need to measure the amount of information if they want to determine the accurate cost. Methods to ensure the transfer of dataUsers should have access to all data. The employees and managers need to be concerned that only the critical data gets into the hand of regular users of a company. Big data is a powerful tool, it company needs an internet connection to analyze big data. The use of big data can reduce threats. It is noticed that the healthcare industries have started to use big data models. Monetization is one of the methods that ensure that only the critical data get passes to the users (Dupuis, Katsoulakis, Pantazis & Plechác, 2016). Information governance use monetizes method because it helps to increase the value of information. The company can get control over the risks that are related to the information. Tools and techniques can be used on big data which invites new opportunities for the company.ReferencesDupuis, P., Katsoulakis, M. A., Pantazis, Y., & Plechác, P. (2016).
