Many businesses need to share data created or maintained in one internal 
organizational unit such as a business unit or division with other 
internal organizational units.  Many technical techniques have been 
developed to facilitate that sharing such as data warehouses and master 
data management.  Yet the overall track record of initiatives for 
implementing and using these techniques is not good.  For example, it 
has been estimated that master data management initiatives fail more 
than 75% of the time.

As my dissertation for a doctorate in business administration, I am 
conducting a research project to examine certain aspects of corporate 
culture and policies that may contribute to the success or failure of 
these initiatives.  I am currently in the process of collecting data for 
that research using a web-based survey.  If you have been part of or 
have observed attempts to share data between internal organizational 
units of a business enterprise, I would like to invite you to take the 
survey by clicking on the following link:


The survey is short and should take no more than 10-15 minutes. My hope 
is that analysis of the survey results will uncover patterns in the 
success and/or failure of data sharing initiatives that we can use to 
develop strategies to make data sharing more consistently successful in 
the future.

Finally, if you know other people who you think could contribute to this 
research, please feel free to forward the survey link to them.

Thank you,

PS  If you would like a copy of the final dissertation document that 
will describe the results of this research, please email me with a 
request at dj4392zd at metrostate.edu <mailto:dj4392zd at metrostate.edu>. I 
hope to be able to complete the dissertation in late 2016 or early 2017.
