CDQ AG: Data Quality Management & Data Quality Services

We enable global organizations throughout Europe to achieve their business goals with the help of professional data management and data quality management. In addition, we help our customer to adequately address current and future trends and challenges (as e.g. IoT, AI, Big Data, ontologies/semantics and Industry 4.0) with excellent corporate data quality. For us, data is more than an enabler of operational excellence – it is essential for designing and offering new, data-driven products and services. Consequently, data is a value driver and needs to be managed as any other corporate asset. Well-managed data is also the starting point for innovative digital business models.

We believe that all data management activities should be aligned with the requirements of business. Data management should act as a service provider for (internal) data customers. Therefore, we support our customers with a comprehensive range of data management services such as data management consulting, training or data quality as a service (DQaaS) solutions including data cleansing and data enrichment. We also offer access to a well-established co-innovation & research data quality management community (CC CDQ). Our solutions are scientifically substantiated, practice-proven and sustainably effective. More about Corporate Data Quality

We meet this wish with our various cloud services, which offer our customers "Data Quality As A Service" (DQaaS).

The Corporate Data League (CDL): "Share Economy" for Customer and Supplier Master Data

The Corporate Data League, or CDL for short, is a unique network of global corporations for the joint maintenance of business partner master data, such as tax numbers, legal entity identifiers and other data. The companies jointly take care of the creation and maintenance of their customer and supplier data - and thus spread the work over many shoulders. At the same time, the data quality is massively improved, e.g. through more than 300 jointly defined data quality rules or the integration of more than 40 external, trustworthy data sources. Through the innovative data cooperation, fraud attempts with counterfeit bank accounts can also be reliably avoided. A common blacklist and a sophisticated rating system protect the CDL members from scamming attacks. Companies that want to protect themselves effectively against invoice fraud can become members of our Fraud Detection & Prevention Community.

One of our further focal points is the improvement of data quality prior to ERP migration, for example before switching to SAP S/4HANA. To this purpose, we offer innovative solutions using data enrichment, data validation and data curation, such as our S/4HANA Data Quality Package.
