There are numerous research studies that point to data not being used, and in business, there’s an insatiable quest to develop more, so there is a disconnect.  As data stewards, there’s an opportunity to recognize that while data, analytics, KPIs, and governance, are framed in the service of the noble causes of our organizations, customers, and patients, not as the noble cause themselves; thus improving usability to solve even the most challenging problems.
