Controller, Controlling and the ICV in picture and sound

Success factor data competence: Consistency as a precondition

"Data competence must become a strategic component of corporate governance". This requires Dr. Jörg Thienemann, Head of the ICV work group Rhein-Neckar and Managing Director of the ICV corporate member Detect Value AG. Finally, according to Thienemann, data in the age of digitization is indispensable for improving processes, products and services and developing new business models. However, this requires appropriate skills. Thienemann does not want to be limited to IT, software development or controlling. Rather, integrated data competence models are needed along with the data value creation. Only this way data could contribute to the strategic success of a company. More about this in the video [German], which we may publish by courtesy of Detect Value AG here.
