Data in Publishing – one final thought

Over the past few months I’ve blogged about book metadata. I’ve blogged about title management systems and I’ve blogged about data strategies and data governance in academic publishing. I’ve blogged about ISBN numbers.

One final thought then, on data and the way publishers use data.

The Media Briefing asked its community to name the most vital jobs in a modern media business. The community answered:

•    Head of data
•    Head of analytics
•    Head of user experience
•    Chief content officer
•    Chief revenue officer
•    Head of premium information
•    Head of social media

Are these job titles how the people sitting around the table in publisher boardrooms would identify themselves? Well perhaps not quite yet, but soon.
