Data Integrity Rules 1 - DATAVERSITY

Data Integrity Rules 1 - DATAVERSITY | Data Management | Scoop.it
by Michael Brackett Developing formal business rules is an excellent concept that must be followed by both business professionals and data management professionals to ensure high quality processes and data. However, developing formal business rules is often oriented toward processes, procedures, and policies rather than toward data resource quality. Formal business rules must be developed to ensure a high quality data resource and high quality information from that data resource to support an organization’s business information demand.

Entropy and data quality: How to keep your data accurate

Entropy and data quality: How to keep your data accurate | Data Management | Scoop.it
IT systems are subject to many of the same laws that govern the rest of the universe, however much IT vendors and end users might like to think otherwise. One of the most fundamental laws of physics, entropy, essentially states that unless energy from the outside is applied, the amount of disorder in an enclosed system will increase over time. Restated in IT terms, this means that the quality of data held in IT systems will deteriorate unless steps are taken to maintain its accuracy and consistency. Given that a majority of organisations rank the data they hold as a primary asset, what should you be doing to look after that data quality more effectively?
