Last night, DataIQ revealed its 2018 list of the 100 most influential people in data-driven business, the DataIQ 100. I was delighted to be included for the second year running - and I’m in very good company. This year’s list is an impressive collection of people using data to make a real difference to the way they drive their business forward. I’m pleased to say that this includes two of Experian’s key customers, Adi Clowes, Head of Data and Analytics at Center Parcs and Michael Greene, Group Data and Analytics Director at Tesco.
Businesses today continue to see data gaining in importance. As more and more organisations work to harness the power that their information can afford them, their underlying data is affecting every aspect of their operations. Departments like customer service, digital commerce, finance, compliance, operations, and more are all working to figure out how they can use data to better serve their customers, reduce risk, and become more efficient in their operations.
From a data quality perspective 2017 looks set to be a challenging year with organisations across the board striving to tackle the challenges of Open Data and the pressures of new regulation.
Data usage is evolving, but so are data quality tools and users
