Data Quality Builds Trust

Data Quality Builds Trust

In our fourth instalment on data this month, we have a look at how data quality can build trust.

You may remember the previous article on data related to Google and the case brought against them by ACCC, who alleges the digital powerhouse has been less than honest with the public about what they do with our personal data. If you didn’t read it, check it out. It is a prime example of how data inaccuracies or ambivalent disclosures can break the trust of your customers.

If anyone reading has ever been on a tram in Melbourne, you’ll know the network is extensive and reliable. As a tram ambles along its tracks, most passengers have their heads down staring at their phones, or nodding off to music. Some on board might be alert for Myki inspectors, ready to clamber off to avoid a fine. Given these distractions, many on board would be unaware of how the smoothness of the tracks or weeds sprouting along the track might impact a tram’s journey.

Big data is a big deal in the world

Big Data

We are all connected: to each other, to our devices, and to a vast number of systems within the government and private sectors. This is quite obviously due to the arrival of the Internet of Things (IoT), those wearable and portable devices that connect us to the internet.

Known as big data, it has totally revolutionised the way many businesses and organisations operate.
