ABSTRACT:

Would you decide to have an operation or life-saving medical procedure based on impartial or incomplete data? Imagine if you did, and later found out that you were incorrectly diagnosed and the treatment was not necessary. You would have put your life at risk because of bad data.

In the business world, data quality problems may not be a matter of life and death, but they still pose a serious threat. More and more companies and government organizations are learning that poor-quality data is damaging their ability to support business processes, comply with regulations and make accurate decisions.

Even though most business leaders understand the need for high-quality data, they are often not sure how to achieve it. This is where IBM InfoSphere Information Server can make a big difference. InfoSphere Information Server is the foundation of many successful data quality initiatives, helping organizations derive more value from the complex, heterogeneous information spread across their systems. Meanwhile, InfoSphere Information Server provides a resilient, reliable, high-performance platform for mission-critical data.

The software delivers the functions required to integrate, validate, enrich and deliver trusted information for your key business initiatives, such as:

  • Defining common business language
  • Understanding all sources of information within the business, analyzing its usage, quality and relationships
  • Cleansing and standardizing information to assure its quality and consistency
  • And more.
