How to Implement Practical Data Quality Management

Data is at the heart of every organisation. However, if not managed properly, this can be detrimental to a business.

All organisations rely on the information created from Data stored in computer systems, to run operations and to make decisions. If this Data is incomplete, invalid, inconsistent, non-standard, misinterpreted and/or not compliant with business rules – you have a Data Quality problem. When your business applications use unreliable Data, you have an information quality problem.

Unless properly addressed, Data and Information Quality issues will lead to untrustworthy information, contributing to:

  • Inefficient delivery
  • Unnecessary risks
  • Non-productive costs.

Employees waste a lot of time when they have to do work over again due to frequently having to search for the right information. Studies have shown that this costs our economy hundreds of millions of Rands every year.

What delegates have to say

“The course exceeded my expectations. The course was carried out exceptionally well. I did not expect to enjoy it, but the concepts were very relevant to our everyday work. I was also able to follow the pace. The course was run well by the instructor. The breakaway exercises also helped me to understand the logic behind the theory better”   Vendaanta Devar (Intern); Altron People Solutions
