Why not continue down that road?
Let’s have a look at some local food that has become popular around the world.
Imagine you go to a restaurant where you order a fish dish. When starting to consume your dinner you realize that the fish hasn’t been boiled, fried or in any other way exposed to heat. Then I guess it is perfectly normal to shout out: THE FISH IS RAW – and demanding apologies from the chef, the head waiter, Gordon Ramsey or anyone else in charge. Unless of course if you are in a sushi restaurant where the famous Japanese dish that may include raw fish is prepared.
Köttbullar is the Swedish word for meatballs. This had rightfully stayed as a fact only known to Swedes if it wasn’t for cheap furniture sold around the world by IKEA. By reasons still unclear to me IKEA has chosen to serve Köttbullar in the store cafeterias and even sell the stuff along with the particle board furniture on their e-commerce sites.
Italian originated dish usually brought to you by someone on a bike or in extreme cases in a very old car.
Selling food of different kind in the form as a burger works in the United States – and by reasons that I can’t explain even in France.
Data Quality analogies
Well, let’s just say that data quality tools and services:
- May be regarded very different around the world,
- Usually are sold along with tools and services made for something completely different,
- Are brought to you in various ways by local vendors and
- By reasons I can’t explain often are made for use in the United States (no other pun intended but pure admiration of execution).
