Data Quality Step 3 - Keeping The Data Clean

Data will only stay clean if the day to day change and update procedures apply the standards developed in step 1.

Responsibility for data must be assigned within the organisation. Data update procedures must be defined to apply the business rules derived from the standards. The data update procedures must be understood and consistently applied.

What I Can Do


  • Write business rules to be applied in updating each data element.
  • Write the procedures for updating data elements and related groups of data elements.

All this in close cooperation with those responsible for maintaining data and those responsible for the business processes using the data.
