Data Quality Assessment
ISIís Data Quality Assessment is a valuable diagnostic tool for managers who are evaluating, planning, building, consolidating or using a data warehouse, data mart, or central information file in concert with targeted customer relationship management (CRM) activities. The assessment can be focused on one or more MDM systems, customer databases or warehouses, a customer segment, or a specific line of business.
The Data Quality Assessment identifies the true content and structure of all data elements, and details anomalies specific to quality, duplication rates, and referential integrity. It also identifies areas where data may be enhanced or improved, and compares the clientís data quality to industry benchmarks. As part of the final report, ISI works with the customerís subject matter experts to quantify the impact of defined data quality issues in terms of costs, customer service, lost revenue, etc.
For organizations that already have an in-house or licensed data quality system in place, ISIís Data Quality Assessment can provide an objective, third-party audit of the systemís performance.
