Poor Data “Qualty” Can Be Embarrassing…
Data quality is one of the biggest barriers to using information effectively, but it’s a hard problem to fix because of the limitations of human nature.
To illustrate the point, here are some unfortunate folks who are responsible for data quality initiatives yet who managed to misspell “data quality” in their LinkedIn job titles (let he who has never made a spelling mistake cast the first stone!).
FYI, I have tried to contact the people concerned to let them know, but didn’t always succeed.
Ha ha funny and to the point.
Well said, Timo. Quality is a direct predecessor to trust, especially when we're talking data. When quality errors are immediately egregious, most people simply stop using that data for their analytics. (We always hope that they raise the issue, specify what is wrong with the data, and indicate the business value of having correct data in the case. But...this doesn't always happen. 🙂
All the more reason to be routinely scanning the data used for key decisions and analytics projects. Oh, and we have a product for that. SAP Information Steward.
