I work as a DBA and I often see a misunderstanding from the business. While I do believe that more information can enable you to make more informed decisions data is not wisdom. We can collect and cut up data but we can't turn it into wisdom.

You are perfectly right about changing data into wizdom.

But from my point of view, wizdom can be achive from accurate data. The problem as I have it here is that users lack of knowledge were their imputs will apply in a report or how their data effect those that take the decisions.
