2iWay Software Next Generation Data Quality One industry study estimated the total cost to the US economy of data quality problems at over US$600 billion per annum (Eckerson, 2002).

Not just in terms of the CEP engine but also the whole idea of embedding capabilities into an ESB. In effect, this is a turn-around from traditional approaches. Other vendors in this space primarily started as batch vendors and now offer real-time or near-real-time extensions but they are still basically batch products. iWay, on the other hand, has designed its EIM to target real-time requirements and, yes, it can do batch too. Companies whose primary requirements are for real-time processing could do worse than to take a good look at iWay EIM.”Philip Howard, Bloor ResearchCopyright 2007, Information Builders. Slide 33
4Data Quality Deployment Points Data Quality can be implemented in all information touch points.Customer/Patient touch pointsApplication touch pointsUp-StreamIn-StreamDown-StreamCustomer/Patient touch pointsA touchpoint is defined as, all of the communication, human and physical interactions your customers experience during their relationship lifecycle with your organization. Whether an Web site, sales person, store or office, Touchpoints are important because customers form perceptions of your organization and brand based on their cumulative experiences. If a customer enters data but is incorrect, this should be highlighted at this touchpoint to ensure the data is accurately recorded.It is important that Data Quality processes ensure the information is validated at this stage, this is the earliest stage in processes, also at this stage it can be the root cause for bad quality data being process and spread through out your organisation.Application TouchpointsTouchpoints is defined with the communication with an application, the cause can be the result/mid-operation of an event or service, this results in an operation being carried out in the target appliciation and source application. Within a single Business process this can involve many application touchpoints. It is important to be able to apply the data processes as early as possible in your business processes. CRM/ERP or simple database.Mention: importance of decoupling DQ processes from implementation knots. DQ processes should be re-useable and callable from anywhere.

Is evolves and changes, data is enriched and transformed. Ensuring the data is valid thru all this stage is important to ensure the validation and result of the service and business process is fullfilling its purpose. The business process may be fulfilling its activities but the data is not good to serve its purpose.

The reports would not generate an accurate view of the business. The customer/patient will not see the correct information or received the best possible treatment and service. The business performance and drilldown capability of the performance management informantion may not be accurate as it could be.Compliance – risk managementThis may not raise or not make the company aware of compliance and regulatory rules accurately and early as possible.Risk management is not held properly.Auditing – this can effect the auditing information, incorrect/insufficient representation of information for an entity.
9Master Data Management Defined MDM for customer data systems are software products that:Support the global identification, linking and synchronization of customer information across heterogeneous data sourcesCreate and manage a central, database-based system of recordEnable the delivery of a single customer view for all stakeholdersMDM architectural styles vary in:Instantiation of the customer master data — varying from the maintenance of a physical customer profile to a more-virtual, metadata-based indexing structureThe latency of customer master data maintenance — varying from real-time, synchronous, reading and writing of the master data in a transactional context to batch, asynchronous harmonization of the master data across systemsAn MDM program potentially encompasses the management of customer, product, asset, person or party, supplier and financial masters.
