Risk Management & Planning
A Data Quality Assessment is a powerful risk management tool that provides valuable input to any legacy data migration, business intelligence, MDM and data integration initiative.
The primary purpose of the Assessment is to provide insights into the state of quality of partcular data sets and inform subsequent planning, estimation and risk mitigation activities. The Data Quality Assessment process relises heavily on data profiling to evaluate data across a broad range of criteria.
At the conclusion of the Data Quality Assessment, clients have the necessary information and metrics to make informed decisions on the best approach for their data-related initiative, as well as a clear understanding of the challenges to be addressed in order to achieve successful outcomes.
