There’s a lot of talk in the data community that data needs to be managed as a corporate asset and treated like other assets in a corporation’s portfolio.  Assets a corporation typically manages include product parts, real-estate, human capital, furniture, computer equipment, and finished good for sale.

There are common principles used to manage each of these types of assets.  An inventory list is created and maintained that associates each item with important attributes such as location, age, how it is used, financial information, and supplier information.  As an item gets logged into the inventory system, these critical attributes are captured and subsequently they are updated at each step in their respective supply chain.
