What is a good approach to start measuring data currency as it relates to my organization? August 13, 2007

Frequency is a good start.  Compile the lag time between updates representing all the different “content” (data) that accompanies each software application across your organization both internally generated and externally supplied by third parties. 

Compare this to your overall file build process, make adjustments, and update your data synchronization standards to reflect any new data sources.  Warning: Be sure to consider the impact these changes may have on other departments, especially marketing.
