Embrace the Change. Emerge Brighter.

And new laws like the GDPR go into effect this year, requiring that organizations not only secure – but also protect – the private data of individuals.

Today, self-service BI and analytics are critical to business users everywhere. But too often, the promise of these tools falls short of the reality. The business struggles to find the data they need. And even if they do find it, they’re unsure what it means, or whether or not it’s trustworthy.

What’s in a name? How Data Quality can define your customer (and your success)

Customer data drives important business initiatives – so the data better be good.  But, what do we mean by “customer”?  Marketing, Services and Billing all have an answer – so we’re in good shape, right?  You’d think so – but they’re all talking about different sets of people!  This common problem frustrates the best of organizations – but it doesn’t have to.
