ESSENTIAL FOR ALL MANAGERS INTERESTED IN GETTING HIGH QUALITY DATA, 11 July 2012
Danette's book is seriously one of the best books on the market on data quality, a must have!
I have read most of the other books on data quality as part of my PhD at Cambridge University, but this is the one you should get. It is perfectly organized, easily understandable and absolutely practice proven. It covers key concepts and hands on techniques that can be directly applied and do not require any previous knowledge or IT know how. You do not need to be involved in a data quality project to find this book useful, the concepts and techniques can be easily integrated into other types of projects or your everyday business activities. I am using Danette's book every time when I am working with industry and it has never failed me, everything works.
If you are also interested in more technical issues regarding data quality, I can also advise you to read David Loshin's The Practitioner's Guide to Data Quality Improvement, which complements Danette's book very well.
High quality data is key for the success of any company today. Big data and business analytics are top on the agenda of most executives. Understanding how to make sure that high quality data is available has therefore become a business issue that is relevant for every manager. I highly recommend every data and business manager to read this important book by Danette McGilvray,
