Abstract: Despite data providing enormous benefit to organization and societies as a whole, it entails a dark side too. Not only referring to the 'dark data' - the +90% of data that is being captured by corporations but not used to drive business decisions, we're seeing misuse of data by ill equipped managers which take the benefit away from it. From Analysis Paralysis, Answers in the search of Questions, loss of context and many 'HIPPO' situations, we are slowly moving from an intended data-driven organization to a driven-data organization, data that is driven by agendas and politics that abuse its appearance. As a result, organizations are looking into creating an ethical and sustainable culture which can ensure that data lives to its promise of transparency, meritocracy and collaboration within companies.
