In reading a few recent blog post on centralized data quality vs. distributed data quality have provoked me to offer another point of view.
Organic distributed data quality provides todays awareness for all current source analysis and problem resolution and they are accomplished manually by individuals in most cases.
In many cases when management or leadership(Folks worried about their jobs) are presented with any type of organized machine based data quality results that can easily be viewed, understood and is permanently available, the usual result is to kill or discredit the messenger.
Automated “Data Quality Scoring” (Profiling + Metadata Mart) brings them from a general “awareness” to a realized state “awarement”.
Awarement is the established form of awareness. Once one has accomplished their sense of awareness they have come to terms with awarement.
It’s one thing to know that alcohol can get you drunk, it quite another to be aware that you are drunk when you are drunk.
Perception = Perception
Awarement = Reality
Departmentral DQ = Awareness
Centralized DQ = Awarement
Share the love… of Data Quality– A distributed approach to Data Quality may result in better data outcomes
