Information is the most important tool in the digital world we live in.
That is the sentiment of Ntiyiso Consulting head of Information Technology Lenka Mohapi.
Mohapi was speaking to Khaya Sithole on POWER Business on Thursday evening about data science and revenue coverage.
Data science is a multidisciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge and insights from structured and unstructured data.
However, Mohapi says, “Not all information is valuable. It is not worth it to have every single piece of information about every single thing.”
Mohopi says people can achieve a lot with very minor information.
With concerns raised about people’s information being pervasive, Mohapi reiterates that not all information can be used.
“We are coming back from a time where everybody wants to gather every little thing, only to find that they cannot use all of it,” he adds.
However, he warns that sometimes information could land in the wrong hands and expose you to fraud.
“The information we put out where everybody needs you to login, submit some kinds of information, for some people [this] is a bit cause for concern.”
