I have a page on this blog with the heading “Data Quality 2.0”. The page is about what the near future in my opinion will bring in the data quality industry. In recent days there were some comments on the topic. My current summing up on the subject is this:
Data Quality X.X are merely maturity milestones where:
Data Quality 0.0 may be seen as a Laissez-faire state where nothing is done.
Data Quality 1.0 may be seen as projects for improving downstream data quality typically using batch cleansing with national oriented techniques in order to make data fit for purpose.
Data Quality 2.0 may be seen as agile implementation of enterprise wide and small business data quality upstream prevention using multi-cultural combined techniques exploiting cloud based reference data in order to maintain data fit for multiple purposes.
