DIKW Bases and Products
“Self-describing” data products include/contain/link to any “knowledge products” (schema, ontology, etc.) they were informed by.
In the sense of the data-information-knowledge-wisdom (DIKW) conceptualization, are there information products?
Perhaps self-describing information products include/contain/link to any “wisdom products” (usage context! impact of previous decisions!) they were informed by?
I started thinking about all this after listening to the conversation with Shane Gibson on a recent Catalog and Cocktails episode.
See below for my first-draft rough sketch of how various DIKW “bases” (so not just databases) can inform corresponding DIKW “products” as part of a process of ongoing improvement of operationalizing digital assets for research and business functions.
