Abstract

This study has highlighted the benefits and value of quality information and the direct consequences associated with low quality data. This paper also describes a number of taxonomies which may be used to classify costs relating to both the consequences of low quality data and the costs of improving and assuring on-going data quality. The study then provides practical examples of data quality improvement initiatives undertaken within two large organisations. Finally a data governance model is proposed centring on three inter-related fundamental elements namely: People, Processes and Data, where any attempt to improve the quality of data within any organisation must be focussed around these three essential elements.
