Data Quality Whitepapers

Written by ITAMS’ consultants, this three-part series of whitepapers looks at Data Quality and its impact on organisations.

The following topics will be covered:

•   Part 1: What is the Problem with Data Quality?

•   Part 2: What are the Benefits of Improving Data Quality?

•   Part 3: How do you Improve Data Quality?

The series is particularly useful for anyone involved in the management of data or anyone who relies on data to help them make informed decisions within the organisation.


When Accurate Data Drives True IT Value

The most substantial challenge in IT asset management related projects and services is without a doubt Quality of Data.

Statistically, companies have around only 60% data accuracy. This can result in substantial risk and potentially additional costs to your organisation, especially when key decisions are being made from inaccurate data.

Introducing Data Hub, a new approach to Asset Data Reconciliation. Data Hub aims to provide true IT value to your organisation by optimising the accuracy of your asset data.

Case Study: Outsourcer Billing Optimisation

This blog uses a real life case study to explore the issues caused by inaccurate IT asset data within the context of Outsourcer Billing.

If IT asset data is not accurate then it could mean that assets are not being correctly billed for.

The IT asset data used for billing will also support a multitude of other functions within the business, such as refresh, service desk, procurement and software asset management/audits.

It is therefore vital that there is complete confidence that the data upon which the billing is based is true and accurate.

Case Study: The Golden Record

Innacurate IT asset data can effect multiple areas of the organisation such as outsourcer billing optimisation, CMDB and ITSM controls, licence management optimisation, security and far more.

For organisations to have complete confidence in their IT asset data we recommend creating a 'Golden Record'.


Written by an ITAMS' expert, our latest blog looks at what a 'Golden Record' is and how it is created.
