One of the biggest challenges in data-based systems and processes is ensuring that data is of a sufficient quality.
Data quality can be a very tricky concept and data can fail in many different ways. As we try and do more things with data, the assessment of quality and fitness-for-purpose becomes more complex. Addressing data quality issues involves all areas of the data lifecycle and can touch on organisational and cultural issues as well.
