|from Santa Claus & the DD Xmas|
"So, for example, moving forward we will keep using geo-location, mapping, mobile device and third-party data to help create ideal transportation paths for my sleigh route on Christmas Eve. We call it 'chimney mapping,' and it provides optimal delivery patterns to ensure that we get every gift delivered on time. Imagine if FedEx had to deliver all of their packages processed during the year… in a matter of 12 hours. That takes a lot of data, a lot of advanced analytics, and a fair amount of strategic planning. (Not to mention a dash or two of Christmas magic!)"
|from What Is Metadata|
Bonnie seems to think that Santa is a fan of Google Docs. But let's not quarrel.
"I think we can agree that Santa would use sound data management practices, including the creation and use of proper metadata, to keep track of his gift giving and logistical data. He would want the rest of us to use good metadata so we can always locate that 30 year old picture of him, too."
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
