Data quality is set to play an even more important role within businesses in the coming year, it has been suggested.

This is the view of SmartData Collective blogger Steve Sarsfield, who believes that the technology will be increasingly used to cope with the vast amounts of data now being stored.

He added that organizations are likely to turn to improving processes and reporting in order to achieve better data management.

"Dwindling are the days where we're dealing with data that is so poorly managed that it requires overly complicated data quality tools.

"We're getting better at the data management process and therefore, the burden on the tools becomes less."

As such, Mr Sarsfield said that future tools will focus on supporting the process improvement with "work flow features, reporting and better graphical user interfaces".

Meanwhile, according to IT Business Edge blogger Loraine Lawson, enterprises must follow up on data quality projects to maintain interest from employees.
