IDQ Webinars: with Martin Doyle


What is the difference between Data and Information


Businesses are collecting more data than ever before, hiring chief data officers to manage the data and some are even referring to the space we are in as  “The Data Revolution”. When discussing the quality of data,  we need to understand exactly what we mean by the word data. We often see the words “data” and “information” being used interchangeably, yet they are not the same. In this webinar, we will discuss the difference between Data and Information and how businesses need to understand the difference between them. 

Webinar recordings are available to IQ International Members only
