Call for Papers

The Program Committee of DataValue 2018 invites submissions in the broad areas of Data Value and Data Governance.

Data is increasingly being utilised and exploited by enterprises as a means to gain competitive advantage. Data provides the capabilities such as delivering services, making informed decisions, and improve financial performance.

Yet, enterprises’ attention is usually focused on accumulating data as opposed to the value of the information or knowledge contained within this data. Moreover, even though information consumes immense resources and money in terms of data capture, storage, processing, and maintenance, ironically it typically receives no recognition on the financial balance sheet.

Due to it’s role and characteristics in enterprises and/or businesses, data can be considered as an asset. Additionally, information has a cost and a value, like most business assets, and theoretically it can be valued in the same way an asset is. Despite this, information has as yet resisted quantitative measurement.

Based on existing literature, we particularly identify the following open challenges:

Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to:
