The Innovative Data Quality Assessment provides a quick and economical evaluation of the quality of your customer information. It identifies areas where your information may be enhanced or improved, and quantifies the impact of the defined data quality issues in terms of costs, customer service, lost revenues, etc. It also benchmarks your organization’s data quality against industry standards, showing how your data quality compares to others in your industry.

Data errors can be reduced but not totally eliminated, so be realistic.  First consideration must be given at point of entry and depending of the size of your organization this could be many.  Once your data is consumed, a number of other places should be considered to monitor data errors, such as: data convertion, data preparation, data migration, data integration, data reporting, data analysis, and finally when it is consumed and displayed for use in a dashboard.

Collectively, once you document where most of these errors are orginating from – then and only then will you be able to classify data errors given the entire end to end process from point of entry to using the data in its original or transformed state in a report, analysis, or dashboard.

Now, that you have compiled all these data errors (specific to your organization) you can begin to feed some/most of these findings back into your data quality, data governance, and data management frameworks.
