Welcome to my BeyeNETWORK Blog. This is going to be the place for us to exchange thoughts, ideas and opinions on all aspects of the information quality and data integration world. I intend this to be a forum for discussing changes in the industry, as well as how external forces influence the way we treat our information asset. The value of the blog will be greatly enhanced by your participation! I intend to introduce controversial topics here, and I fully expect that reader input will "spice it up." Here we will share ideas, vendor and client updates, problems, questions and, most importantly, your reactions. So keep coming back each week to see what is new on our Blog!

I am honored to be one of the co-moderators of the upcoming TDWI Solution Summit on Master Data, Quality, and Governance, to be held March 4-6 in Savannah, GA. I attended one of these events in the past, met a lot of people currently engaged in launching an MDM project, but this year I have helped to find some cases studies that focus on master data as a result of good data quality and governance techniques, not the driver. Please go to the web site and check it out, then apply to be a delegate! Hope to see you there!

There is a difference between data validity and data correctness, especially in that valid data might still be wrong. I have a series of notes about data validity, data correctness, and some approaches for considering the difference and taking action that I am currently developing at my Data Quality book website. Please check them out!

I have had a great opportunity to put some thoughts to paper (courtesy of Informatica) regarding methods for understanding business impacts related to data quality improvement and how they can be isolated, organized, measured, and communicated to a variety of stakeholders across the organization.

 

Here are links for downloading the papers:

Understanding the Financial Value of Data Quality Improvement

Improved Risk Management via Data Quality Improvement

Improving Organization Productivity through Improved Data Quality

Please check them out and let me know your thoughts!

I have been invited by data quality and MDM tool company Ataccama to be the invited guest speaker at a series of breakfast seminar events in early March at the following locations:

March 1 Bridgewater NJ

March 2 Chicago, IL

March 3 Charlotte, NC

The topic is "Strategic Business Value from your Enterprise Data," and I will be discussing aspects of business value drivers for Data Quality and MDM. I believe that attendees will also get a copy of my book "Master Data Management."

I participated in a few similar events at the end of 2010 and found that some of the attendees posed ssome extremenly interesting challenges, and I hope to share some new insights at these upcoming events!
