Data quality is about having the right information, in the right place, for analytics and operational support.
Errors in data mean much more than bad decisions.
For every business process, data errors create risk and increase costs.
We provide sustainable and cost-effective solutions to deliver trusted information, no matter where it enters and how it flows through your enterprise.
Data quality is a business function that should be supported by IT.
Ensuring quality data is an ongoing function that may include a combination of automated checks and validations, automated data cleansing and matching, and manual data scrubbing or remediation.
Trusted data is the foundation for successful operations, analytics and planning.- ensuring that the data supporting operations, decision making and planning are fit for purpose - irrespective of when, how or why they entered the organisation.
While tactical data cleansing approaches have a role to play at a project level, we suggest that a consistent, strategic approach to ensuring fit for purpose data is needed at an enterprise level. Data standards and policies defined and governed at an enterprise-level ensure that the impact of data changes is clearly understood, even across business silos, and that data cleansing exercises are optimised for multiple purposes.
We assist you to ensure that the data that powers your business is fit for purpose, through a combination of implementation, education and the enterprise data quality platform.
Our goal is simple: to deliver “peak condition” information fit for your business, however, wherever and whenever you need it.
Enterprise Data Quality demands a solution that can scale to the needs of your enterprise, yet can ensure correct and consistent data at every touchpoint.
Our solutions range from:
- the delivery of a quick data audit in support of any data-intensive project,
- once-off data migrations and cleansing projects
- a data quality strategy aligned to your data governance goals,
- batch cleansing and matching projects - for example, to support a data warehouse
- application data management with native plugins for popular CRM and ERP systems such as Microsoft Dynamics® and SAP® to ensure trusted, reliable and consistent data.
- data validation and enrichment at point of capture - address validation, geocoding, telephone and email validation.
We help you to move beyond a limited, application-centric view of data quality to ensure consistent application of data governance policies and standards across all applications in your architecture.
