My Passion for Data Management Started 14 Years Ago
Hi, my name is Zbigniew Korendo, but for customers and my colleagues I like to keep things simple and they call me just "Zib". I am a father of one son and live in Krakow, Poland. My interest in data management started 14 years ago. I am happy to see how impact of data quality and its management has been receiving such a growing attention over the past years.
You Can Only Tell Data Quality by Its Fitness to Your Business Purpose
As a data management expert my personal advice for better data quality is: "Data quality is only as much meaningful, as the data that you manage fit the purpose of your business processes. One can only tell this, if data requirements are derived from your actual business needs – be it performance issues or growth targets. Do not perceive data quality merely as a problem to be solved, but as an opportunity that your business has an ambition to leverage!"
Data Quality Continues to Be a Make-or-break Factor
My PHD thesis was about "Application of neural and fuzzy controllers in automatic control of mechatronic systems." Already then - long before the era of data catalogs and metadata management - the quality of input data was a make-or-break factor for successful training and validation of the neural networks I researched. Over time I have realized more and more how important it is for every organization to manage its data in a structured and sustainable manner, pretty much as any other company asset.
