Do these situations sound familiar? Your company is involved in a data integration project such as building a data warehouse or migrating several source systems into an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) application. Data quality issues are impacting the project timeline or users are distrustful of the information that is provided. Whether you are just starting the project or are already in production, it is not unusual to find that information quality issues prevent the company from realizing the full benefit of their investment in the new systems.
