Rapid Data Quality Assessment Service
Vague feelings of poor data quality can hamper business activity by casting doubt on the data that feeds both operational and analytical processes.
Yet the absence of clearly defined measurements to demonstrate how business impacts are attributable to erred data prevents developing an appropriate business case for introducing data quality management improvement.
When resources are allocated to correcting “bad data” without being able to evaluate the root causes there is no ability to objectively evaluate the relationship between poor data quality and business performance. This suggests a need for an approach that can quickly identify high priority data issues whose remediation can be justified.
Companies in this situation can greatly benefit from our Rapid Data Quality Assessment Service.
