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”.

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.


What does Hadoop do...

Hadoop uses a distributed processing architecture called MapReduce in which a task is mapped to a set of servers for proce…

5 Things About AWS EC2 You Need to Focus!

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) - is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction.

The basic functions of EC2... 
It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change.Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. 
Key Points for Interviews:
EC2 is the basic fundamental block around which the AWS are structured.EC2 provides remote ope…
