Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Data quality is one of the most difficult challenges for nearly every business, IT organization, and BI program. The most common approach to data quality problems is reactive—a process of fixing problems when they are discovered and reported. But reactive data quality methods are not quality management; they are simply quality maintenance—a never-ending cycle of continuously fixing defects but rarely removing the causes. The only proven path to sustainable data quality is through a comprehensive quality management program that includes data profiling, data quality assessment, root cause analysis, data cleansing, and process improvement.
