We are pleased to announce that this year’s Data IQ talent award for ‘Data quality programme leader’ was awarded to our very own Experian Pandora user, Paul Hennessy from Aldermore. The worthy winner of this incredible award created and implemented a transformational data governance and quality program; ensuring Aldermore has the data it needs to deliver on key strategic activity.
99% of organisations have a data quality strategy in place1 and collectively 78% of large British companies will invest in data quality techniques during 2014, with 51% investing in areas that they currently don’t invest in already. Clearly this demonstrates that data quality strategies are high up on the agenda of the majority of organisations.2
