Perform a Data Audit .
Don’t just execute an audit to identify what issues exist, probe deeper to unravel why they exist.
You need to take action!
Data issues are deeply rooted and extremely complex. Not only do organizations have trouble choosing a starting point for bad data, but they also have difficulty finding the root cause of the issue. As a result, data audits can be long, tedious initiatives, which offer little
insight into the data issues.
Business pains
There is uncertainty as to whether the data is complying with laws and regulations.
The business has trouble executing its main business processes due to bad data.
Employees get different answers from supposedly the same data sets.
There is a genuine inability to make good business decisions because the data is of such low quality.
The business is experiencing severe dissatisfaction from customers, partners, and suppliers alike due to the bad data and it is eroding the business’s reputation.
The business is leaking money all over the place as a result of duplicate mailings, time wasted finding new customer information, etc.
IT pains
The business continues to complain to IT that the organizational data is inadequate for its operations.
CIOs and IT departments feel that they need to step in to alleviate pains caused from bad data.
IT has spent countless person-hours sifting through data to resolve issues, wasting time and money.
The business insists that IT is responsible and that it takes measures to rectify the issue, but clean-up efforts are futile; regardless of the tools IT employs, the data gets dirty again almost immediately.
Don’t try to solve a case without interviewing your witnesses and questioning your suspects.
Info-Tech’s methodology for a data audit equips you with a step-by-step approach to optimize your audit efforts through combining technical aspects with end-user interaction.
Often organizations attempt a data audit without recognizing the sheer importance of end-user experiences and knowledge.
For an effective audit you cannot solely rely on running reports through information systems and evaluating your SLAs, you must also interview the end users.
User profiling will help you understand how the process works and how data is created and curated.
A combination of technical profiling and user profiling will help you understand where issues are and why they exist.
An annual data audit initiative will continually revise and fine-tune ongoing practices, processes, and procedures for the management and handling of data within the organization.
You can’t do everything at once. Pick a process, see some early victories, gain momentum, and repeat.

Perform a Data Audit

  • 1. Perform a Data Audit . Don’t just execute an audit to identify what issues exist, probe deeper to unravel why they exist. You need to take action! Data issues are deeply rooted and extremely complex. Not only do organizations have trouble choosing a starting point for bad data, but they also have difficulty finding the root cause of the issue. As a result, data audits can be long, tedious initiatives, which offer little insight into the data issues. Business pains There is uncertainty as to whether the data is complying with laws and regulations. The business has trouble executing its main business processes due to bad data. Employees get different answers from supposedly the same data sets. There is a genuine inability to make good business decisions because the data is of such low quality. The business is experiencing severe dissatisfaction from customers, partners, and suppliers alike due to the bad data and it is eroding the business’s reputation. The business is leaking money all over the place as a result of duplicate mailings, time wasted finding new customer information, etc. IT pains The business continues to complain to IT that the organizational data is inadequate for its operations. CIOs and IT departments feel that they need to step in to alleviate pains caused from bad data. IT has spent countless person-hours sifting through data to resolve issues, wasting time and money. The business insists that IT is responsible and that it takes measures to rectify the issue, but clean-up efforts are futile; regardless of the tools IT employs, the data gets dirty again almost immediately. Don’t try to solve a case without interviewing your witnesses and questioning your suspects. Info-Tech’s methodology for a data audit equips you with a step-by-step approach to optimize your audit efforts through combining technical aspects with end-user interaction. Often organizations attempt a data audit without recognizing the sheer importance of end-user experiences and knowledge. For an effective audit you cannot solely rely on running reports through information systems and evaluating your SLAs, you must also interview the end users. User profiling will help you understand how the process works and how data is created and curated. A combination of technical profiling and user profiling will help you understand where issues are and why they exist. An annual data audit initiative will continually revise and fine-tune ongoing practices, processes, and procedures for the management and handling of data within the organization. You can’t do everything at once. Pick a process, see some early victories, gain momentum, and repeat.
