Information supply chain (ISC) framework uses an analogy with industrial supply chains to conceptualize steps in producing a quality information product. It treats input data as raw materials in this process, and allows taking it through a data factory, where data – disconnected bits – turns into information, a usable set that can be analyzed and acted upon. This information is then warehoused and disceminated to consumers via retail outlets – data marts.
This framework and approach allows representation of nearly any process of data ingestion as a repeatable process, and allows for significant gains in productivity, time to market and total cost of ownership of data platform as whole.
Information usage cycle feeding into OODA loop
Information Usage Cycle: The Information Usage Cycle outlines the stages of managing and utilizing information effectively within an organization. It begins with data collection, moves through processing and analysis, and ends with the dissemination of insights to inform decisions and strategies.
OODA Loop: The OODA Loop, which stands for Observe, Orient, Decide, and Act, is a strategic framework used for decision-making. Developed by military strategist John Boyd, it emphasizes the importance of agility and rapid adaptation through a continuous loop of observing the environment, orienting oneself to the situation, making decisions, and taking actions.
