Statement of Motivation for a DBA

Organizational policy positions, whether in the public or private sector, should serve as enablers of the overall business strategy. However in the space of data and digital how this strategy is set is not being pursued relative to overall corporate strategy and generally driven from the technical side. My intention through my DBA work is to develop a framework to support organizations in the health sector to develop a business-driven data and digital strategy. Ideally this will enable organizations to better realize their corporate strategy through engagement with the data and digital economies.
