Welcome to the highly anticipated debut episode of the Obsessive-Compulsive Data Quality (OCDQ) podcast—OCDQ Radio!
In this episode, I discuss how data, data quality, data-driven decision making, and metadata quality no longer reside exclusively within the esoteric realm of data management. Data has now so thoroughly pervaded mainstream culture that we hardly seem to notice that we are quite literally swimming in data on a daily basis.
The growing challenge is can we extract meaningful insights from these vast and veritable oceans of unrelenting data volumes, and use those insights to make better decisions in near real-time in order to positively impact the various aspects of our lives.
We are now living in a brave new data world where everyone is a data geek—and data quality affects us all.
Or to paraphrase William Shakespeare:
How many goodly data are there here! How beauteous data geeks are!
O brave new world!
That is so dependent on the quality of the data in it!”
