Lots of people want data for lots of reasons.
But, what is data?
"discrete, objective facts or observations, which are unorganized and unprocessed and
 therefore have no meaning or value because of lack of context and interpretation."

Jennifer Rowley, Richard Hartley (2006)
Data
Dog sterilisation count = 5
Information
"organized or structured data, which has been processed in such a way that the
information now has relevance for a specific purpose or context"

Jennifer Rowley
50 dogs sterilised in District X
 in January 2013
Knowledge
"synthesis of multiple sources of information over time"
"information connected in relationships"
Wisdom
"what to do, act or carry out"
Milan Zeleny (2005)
If we sterilise 'X' dogs per day, between March
 and October, in District 'Y', we have an 80%
probability of reducing population
to 'Z' in 2 years
The Problem?
An Integrated Solution
Integration
Centrally managed, secure, common repository
Common terminology, consistency, in real-time
