Survey on Data Validation and Testing
We performed a study of Big Data, Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence professionals at 207 companies interested in improving the level of data quality in their projects.
Our findings pointed out that many companies have minimal insight into the health of their corporate data. In other words, they have no view of the status of the data (verified and unverified) that is flowing through their applications. And corporate data is the strategic asset — it is their company’s lifeblood.
In the study, we also found that:
- 29% of companies validated less than 1 percent of their data
- 33% had validated less than 5 percent
- 58% had validated less than 25 percent
- a whopping 84% had validated less than 50 percent of their data
The average organization loses $14 million annually through poor data quality, while 4% put that figure as high as $100 million.
There is a real and significant risk — both financially and to your company’s reputation — for not having an organized, repeatable way to assure your company’s greatest asset – your data.
