A Checklist for Creating Data Products

“Data is the new oil.” -- everyone (first by Clive Humby)

"Treat data like money." -- Jim Davis (SAS CMO) in The Economist

Are you are sitting on a gold mine -- if only you could transform your unique data into a valuable, monetizable data product?

Over the years, we’ve worked with dozens of clients to create applications that refine data and package the results in a form users will love. We often talk with product managers early in the conception phase to help define the target market and end-user needs, even before designing interfaces for presenting and visualizing the data.

In the process, we've learned a few lessons and gather a bunch of useful resources. Download our Checklist for Product Managers of Data Solutions. It is divided into four sections:

1. Audience: Understand the people who need your data 2. Data: Define and enhance the data for your solution 3. Design: Craft an application that solves problems 4. Delivery: Transition from application to profitable product

Happy drilling.
