Happy Pi Day

Today March 14 (or 3-14 when writing a date with the month before the day) is Pi Day.

Sometimes I use the analogy about squaring the circle when talking about how to get data quality right. In real life we have to make an approximate construction similar to when we square the circle – sometimes 22/7 or 3.14 instead of Pi with 15,000 decimals is OK and anyway the real fix is proved impossible.

Striving for the ultimate 360° view was discussed in a post here on the blog last year called “360° Business Partner View”.

    It is also Einstein’s 133rd Birthday. I can’t find a simple analogy though, but it looks magically too.
