The State of Information Quality and Data Governance: Top 10 Questions Raised by the 2016 Survey Results


In the northern Spring of 2016, a team of researchers from UALR and IQ International conducted an industry survey to find out what has changed regarding information quality and data governance practices since the industry surveys we conducted in 2008, 2009, and 2012. In this talk, we will examine the findings that surprised us the most and will engage the webinar audience in a lively discussion of the underlying factors that might be driving these changes.
