Poor Data Quality-New Job Roles in Data Quality

Data quality is on rise and important to the organizations today. Since in Experian research it has found that poor data quality causing losses to the companies.

Experian research suggests companies in the UK, the US, Australia and western Europe have poorer quality data this year than last. The credit information company’s 2015 Global Data Quality Research among 1,239 organisations found a dramatic lack of data quality “ownership”, and 29% of respondents were still cleaning their data by hand.
 
The number of organisations that suspect inaccurate data has jumped from 86% in 2014 to 92%. Also, respondents reckoned 26% of their data to be wrong, up from 22% in 2014 and 17% in 2013. Some 23% of respondents said this meant lost sales, up from 19% in 2013.
Boris Huard, managing director of Experian Data Quality, said: “Getting your data strategy right is vital if you want to be successful in this consumer-driven, digitalised age. It is encouraging that companies are increasingly switching on to the value of their data assets, with 95% of respondents stating that they feel driven to use their data to understand customer needs, find new customers or increase the value of each customer.”

Poor Data Quality is cost million pounds to the companies.About one-third of organisations use automated systems, such as monitoring and audit technology (34%), data profiling (32%) or matching and linkage technology (31%) to clean their data. A total of 29% still use manual checking to clean their data.

Huard added: “As our Dawn of the CDO research demonstrated, a new breed of chief data officers, chief digital officers and director of insights are emerging – new roles that have come about in response to the pressure and opportunity presented by big data.”

However, only 35% of respondents said they manage data quality by way of a single director and nearly 63% are missing a coherent, centralised approach to data quality. More than half said individual departments still go their own way with respect to data quality enforcement, and 12% described their data quality efforts as “ad hoc”.

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

The unique helpful SAN architecture simplified one

Storage Area Networks (SANs)

A SAN is connected behind the servers. SANs provide block-level access to shared data storage. Block level access refers to the specific blocks of data on a storage device as opposed to file level access. One file will contain several blocks. 

SANs provide high availability and robust business continuity for critical data environments. SANs are typically switched fabric architectures using Fibre Channel (FC) for connectivity. The term switched fabric refers to each storage unit being connected to each server via multiple SAN switches also called SAN directors which provide redundancy within the paths to the storage units. This provides additional paths for communications and eliminates one central switch as a single point of failure.Ethernet has many advantages similar to Fibre Channel for supporting SANs. Some of these include high speed, support of a switched fabric topology, widespread interoperability, and a large set of management tools. In a storage ne…
