Just for clarity are you talking about Data Quality of the transactions within a database...or the Data Quality of the application settings and master data that drive the computations and processing of the transactions? I contend that it may be acceptable for 99% quality for transactions but companies always should be aiming for 100% of the drivers that impact the system's outputs and reports.
