What You find here
New: Please visit my blog, which I use to comment on news and trends. I call it True/False because my company is called TF Informatik, and true/false is the foundation for all of it, as you know.

This site is dedicated to helping You identify:
  • Best practises within production of information (using eg. a Data Warehouse)
  • What not to do (and why)
  • What ought to happen (sometime soon)
In a few words: It is meant as a source of inspiration for both business people and information workers. With a clear focus on what is important!

From Data to Information and Knowledge

Companies and organisations collect vast amounts of data in their daily operations. Such data contains lots of information, which may become useful knowledge. For example knowledge about customer behaviour or the most succesful products.
Data do not turn into knowledge all by themselves. To enable that you need insight and some specific processing. Only then the Business will experience the value of data being turned into information - enabling the acquisition of true knowledge.
What experience has taught us is that good business solutions should take inspiration from:
  • Less is more!
  • Business focus!
Developing the business by way of information "production" is what this site is all about.
