Much of the Business Intelligence reporting, Analytics, and Data Visualizations contain data errors that are hidden, because the sources are fraught with anomalies and inconsistencies. In most organizations, data quality issues lead to erroneous decisions and lost opportunities. Is your organization allowing the 800 pound Gorilla to be ignored and cause chaos?

Join us as we share insights on how we have been fighting this beast by overcoming obstacles and demonstrating results:

  • Common Data Quality issues and their impact on your organization, understanding issues lurking in the shadows
  • Overcoming the lack of understanding and the obstacles between the business teams and technology groups
  • Real life case studies for performing Data Quality Assessments and using the assessment results
  • Being Proactive versus Reactive and the impact of doing nothing
  • Leveraging a Data Architecture to make the process repeatable
