A New Year Means New Data Management Habits

The new year brings new resolutions. May I suggest that one of your New Year’s resolutions be the creation of one new data management habit within your organization? Here are some suggestions:

And remember, developing habits takes time. (The old saw that it takes 21 days to establish a new habit isn’t actually based in science. Some habits can take several months to really “take.”)

And also remember, it’s better to implement one idea really well than it is to implement several ideas poorly.

So choose ONE new habit that you can implement in your organization and make 2019 the year that you start loving your database again!
