Anyone who has worked in Data Management knows the struggles that IT endures. They typically have limited resources around people and infrastructure. They have protocols and regulations that they must adhere to when handling data that is constantly changing and evolving (hello, GDPR). And the backlog of requests from the business for queries, extracts, reports, and the like is a never-ending workload that can’t be completed quickly enough to keep pace with the instant-gratification world we live in. On top of that, if the data delivered to those business users is of poor quality, it’s just another crisis waiting to happen. It’s a tough, underappreciated world for the typical IT warrior.
But occasionally, help is on the horizon. One example of this help can come in the form of Data Quality Tools.
