Evaluate the strategic value of the proposed organisation, Basic Statistics

3) Evaluate the strategic value of the proposed organisation of business data to the Facebook social network site.

Assignment brief:
If data were stored in an unorganised manner within a system, how difficult would it be to retrieve them? It would be difficult to use and exploit the data collected for its intended purposes. Therefore in all systems, data resources must be organised and structured in some logical manner so that they can be accessed easily, processed efficiently, retrieved quickly and managed effectively (O'Brien and Marakas, 2010 p 170).

It is important to appreciate the value of database management; this is something that is clearly central to the success of companies such as Facebook social networking. The emergence of social network services such as Facebook have a perspective on the critical elements of management information and the related topics such as knowledge management and decision making. Understanding how data are structured, stored and accessed can help businesses gain greater strategic value from their organisations data resources.
