Data integrity

 

Think about the quality of data in your software (completeness and accuracy)

The quality of your data has an impact on your efficiency and to a potential purchaser, can affect the perceived value of your business.

 

How can I improve data integrity in my systems?

  • Publish a minimum level data entry policy and a data integrity statement. These two will ensure staff understands the value you have placed on completeness and accuracy moving forward.
  • Ensure your business processes include software instructions

 

Be proactive and test the quality of your data

  • Periodically scan your software for incomplete records. For example create lists of clients:
    • without a category (segment)
    • with missing contact details (address, phone, email)
    • with missing title, gender, dates of birth
  • Data feed admin – This can be a huge time sponge – ensure it is proactively administered
  • If customizing your system, leverage existing features. This will ensure that when vendors enhance their core solution, your work carries forward.
