This book is about gathering the measurement data and making an effectiveness results to assist decision-making process to evaluate the level of the organisational goals achievement. In order to achieve this aim, the authors designed a new framework as a platform represents five steps for domain experts and entrepreneurs to identify the relevant organisational data from huge amount of data known as Big Data to assist decision-making process in relation to the organisational goals. Therefore, the decision-makers can evaluate the level of the organisational goals achievement. The authors named the framework as GOAL-Framework. The book concentrates on the design of this framework. GOAL-Framework associated with the organisational goals ontology aims to identify the dependency relationship between organisational goals and dependency relationship between organisational data and organisational goals. Metrics is defined for this dependency to identify which organisational data is relevant to the organisational goals. The framework is flexible to change without affecting things around because the framework is applicable in any organisational data with different organisational goals. The authors summarize the framework presented in this book with all the information, results and ideas. The authors discuss the review of the problems, solution for the problems and draw a conclusion in this book.
