When MP's begin to start talking about data quality you know a project is headed for trouble, shame it's a £1,000,000,000 system migration at our expense.

How to Create a Data Quality Policy: This is one of those perennial favourites on Data Quality Pro and a great example for any vendors or bloggers looking to get started with their blog.

The content which always ranks most highly on Data Quality Pro is that which solves a problem or provides practical resources.

I've read a lot of vendor blogs in particular recently that merely post opinion pieces on data quality, data governance and MDM. That's great but don't forget that people need tactics and resources. Think about what practical skills you can impart to your audience and you'll see a sharp difference in the traffic and engagement on your blog.

The link between bad business rules and bad data quality is fairly obvious, fortunately Graham Witt has the cure, check out the following interview and his latest book

UK MP's have hit out at the MOD for failing to tackle data quality. This has the making of another mega million data migration trainwreck, when will organisations realise that you can't just dump crap data into a new target system, you can't reverse decades of neglect through outsourcing, there appears to be a dearth of real data leadership up and down the line.
