Good data is like good water: best served fresh, and ideally well-filtered. Data Management strategies can produce tremendous procedural improvements and increased profit margins across the board, but only if the data being managed is of a high quality. Determining how Data Quality should be engineered provides a useful framework for utilizing Data Quality Management effectively in support of business strategy, which in turn allows for speedy identification of business problems, delineation between structural and practice-oriented defects in Data Management, and proactive prevention of future issues. Organizations must realize what it means to utilize Data Quality engineering in support of business strategy. This webinar will illustrate how organizations with chronic business challenges often can trace the root of the problem to poor Data Quality. Showing how Data Quality should be engineered provides a useful framework in which to develop an effective approach. This in turn allows organizations to more quickly identify business problems as well as data problems caused by structural issues versus practice-oriented defects and prevent these from re-occurring.
- Understand foundational Data Quality concepts based on the DAMA Guide to Data Management Book of Knowledge (DAMA DMBOK), as well as guiding principles, best practices, and steps for improving Data Quality at your organization
- Recognize how chronic business challenges for organizations are often rooted in poor Data Quality
- Share case studies illustrating the hallmarks and benefits of Data Quality success
