A comment on my last blog post took me back to the days when I started working with Information Technology (IT). At that time our métier actually wasn’t called IT but EDP (Electronic Data Processing) – at least that was the case in my home country Denmark where we used the local TLA being EDB (Elektronisk Data Behandling).
I have earlier touched the long standing discussion about if “data quality” should be rebranded as “information quality” for example in the post called new blog name, as this should also require a new name for this blog.
The words data and information are indeed used very randomly around. In MDM (Master Data Management) we have two main domains being Customer Data Integration (CDI) and Product Information Management (PIM). Wonder if customer data is old school and product information is new school?
