Infonomics - Gartner IT Glossary
Infonomics is the emerging discipline of managing and accounting for information with the same or similar rigor and formality as other traditional assets (e.g., financial, physical, intangible, human capital). Infonomics posits that information itself meets all the criteria of formal company assets, and, although not yet recognized by generally accepted accounting practices, increasingly, it is incumbent on organizations to behave as if it were to optimize information’s ability to generate business value.

Serverless Single Page Apps: Fast, Scalable, and Available by Ben Rady | The Pragmatic Bookshelf
The best definition of yak shaving I have come across is from page xiii of Serverless Single Page Apps by Ben Rady.
“If you’re not familiar with the term yak shaving, imagine you want to buy a sweater as a gift for a friend. You go to the store only to discover it has no sweaters to sell. Fortunately, another customer there knows of a great tailor down the street who might be able to make you one. So you head to the tailor, who has a wonderful sweater pattern and a machine that can knit it, but the yarn supplier hasn’t made a delivery today. So you head to the supplier…

And this continues on and on until you find yourself in a field in western Tibet, shaving a yak to spin yarn. “How did I get here?” you might ask yourself.
“All I wanted was a sweater.” When a chain of seemingly related and necessary tasks distracts you from your real goal, you’re yak shaving.”
