Publisher Comments:

"I've been waiting for this book for more than 10 years....Jack Olson's contribution represents the superb blend of theory and guidance from a master practitioner and should be useful to those just starting in this exciting field as well as experienced practitioners."

- Peter Aiken, Ph.D., Institute for Data Research, Virginia Commonwealth University

Data Quality: The Accuracy Dimension is about assessing the quality of corporate data and improving its accuracy using the data profiling method. Corporate data is increasingly important as companies continue to find new ways to use it.

Data profiling is a new technology that supports and enhances the accuracy of databases throughout major IT shops. Jack Olson explains data profiling and shows how it fits into the larger picture of data quality.
