The Data Avalanche Is Coming Are You Ready?
This is not a problem that technology alone can resolve. For most companies it will require a seismic cultural shift in how data is perceived and managed by every person in the organization. Systems and IT infrastructure can evolve endlessly, but you cant buy a culture of data quality. It takes time sometimes many years to create a vision, sense of urgency and an ability to adapt.

Oughtnt You Audit
Ensuring that the data being used to make critical business decisions is as reliable and accurate as possible is why data quality is so vitally important to the success of your organization. That statement would probably make most people throughout your organization nod their head in ... agreement. So why do these very same people: never check that data is complete and accurate before sharing it with others; never seek to understand what the data means within a business context; never consider the costs and other risks associated with poor data quality; and never verify the data that they are using to make critical business decisions?
