The Data, Information, Knowledge process

Another Quick Information blog for you:

The image below is a representation of an evolution of sorts. Data (When aggregated) becomes Information (When contextualized) becomes Knowledge (When applied effectively) might just make you and your business system more effective. This effectiveness can and often is monetized.

Data is made up of: (there’s more of course)
• Words
• Images
• Numbers

Information is made up of: (Yes there more to this too)
• Purpose
• Meaning
• Process

Knowledge is made up of: (OMG, there really is so much more to this one)
• Structure
• Growth
• System

Yes; this is a simplified approach, but I would really appreciate your input, feedback and further dialogue.
