Does this sound familiar? You are concerned about the quality of data in your organization. Few proactive efforts are underway, with the majority of resources going toward too-frequent emergency clean-up efforts quickly put into place to ward off disastrous impact to the business. You know there is a better way. But how do you get your organization to move from chaos to being proactive? How do you stop the spiral of continual data cleanup and move to a proactive data strategy?

Join us to learn about key stops on the journey up the DQ maturity curve - from (semi)chaos to reactive to proactive complete with tactical methods that can be applied to any data quality effort. Key points include:

  • Business impacts
  • Applying a data quality methodology
