International Data Quality

OCDQ Radio is a vendor-neutral podcast about data quality and its related disciplines, produced and hosted by Jim Harris.

On this episode of OCDQ Radio, I discuss the sometimes mysterious world of international name and address data quality, which is why I am pleased to be joined by, not an international man of mystery, but instead, an international man of data quality.

Graham Rhind is an acknowledged expert in the field of data quality.  Graham runs GRC Database Information, a consultancy company based in The Netherlands, where he researches postal code and addressing systems, collates international data, runs a busy postal link website, writes data management software, and maintains an online Data Quality Glossary.

Graham Rhind speaks regularly on the subject and is the author of four books on the topic of international data management, including The Global Source Book for Name and Address Data Management, which has been an invaluable resource for me.

On this episode of OCDQ Radio, Graham Rhind and I discusses the international challenges of postal address and person name data quality, including its implications for web forms and other data entry interfaces.
