Type:  White Paper
Length:  28 pages

Learn about the importance of having a data quality strategy and setting the overall goals. The six factors of data are also explained in detail and how to tie it together for implementation.

This paper discusses:
• Goals that drive a data quality strategy
• Six factors that should be considered when building a strategy—context, storage, data flow, workflow, stewardship, and continuous monitoring
• Decisions within each factor
• Actions stemming from those decisions
• Resources affected by the decisions and needed to support the actions

You will see how, when added together in different combinations, the six factors of data quality provide the answer as to how people, process, and technology are the integral and fundamental elements of information quality.

The paper concludes with a discussion on the transition from data quality strategy development to implementation via data quality project management. Finally, the appendix presents a strategy outline to help your business and IT managers develop a data quality strategy.
