IDC Technology Spotlight – Putting Data Integrity into a Larger Context

Data is a core element in the future of intelligence, but it can also be an inhibitor to success. The current state of data integrity – data accuracy, consistency, lack of context – is limiting the scale at which insights can be delivered for more confident decision making.

Data integrity provides a firm foundation for data analytics and confident actions. Accuracy and consistency in data, enhanced with context through location and enrichment can help companies achieve data integrity.
