I was recently lucky enough to present to a group of Pharmaceutical organisations at an industry event in Södertälje, Sweden. They were concerned about the arrival of the GDPR and what it could mean for the data held within their supply chains – which are complex to say the least!
I thought it would be worth summarising my discussion with this group as the issues facing the pharma industry will be similar for any organisation that has a complex supply chain of ingredients, parts or products – for example, manufacturing and retail.
With GDPR enforcement imminent, it’s a pivotal moment to observe how well geared up UK organisations are, as well as the changing perceptions of consumers around use of their data.
So, once again, we’ve teamed up with DataIQ to carry out the third instalment of this GDPR Impact Series research. Hot off the press, we were delighted to launch the report at a co-hosted DataIQ event last week where the guest panel, including our own Paul Malyon, got to grips with key priorities and tips for getting ready. You can read more about the discussion in DataIQ’s round up here.
If you want to tackle data quality issues, the very best place to start is by understanding where you are right now. That’s why we’ve just launched a new interactive data quality maturity assessment. It’s a great starting point for getting a benchmark of your data quality sophistication across the three core building blocks of a successful data improvement initiative; people, process, and technology. Taking the test will place you in one of 4 categories, ‘unaware’, ‘reactive’, ‘proactive’ or ‘optimised and governed’ and offer steps to take to make future improvements. It could offer invaluable advice to kick-start your data quality initiative.
