What is the cost of bad, inconsistent or missing data? Wrong decisions. Unprofitable strategies. Wasted time and money.
It's a fact: Poor data quality costs your organization money. It's also a fact that assessing, maintaining and enhancing data quality is one of the toughest challenges in business intelligence.
Now, a data quality solution built using a new set of tools from say a company like SAP Business Objects can help you improve your data — and your organization's confidence in it.
SAP BusinessObjects XI 3.x added advanced data quality capabilities to the already robust Data Integrator. This powerful combination, called Data Services, gives you the ability to transform questionable data into trusted information. You use one tool for both ETL and DQ.

Data Quality Implementation : Deploy and configure BusinessObjects XI 3.x Data Services, determine DQ standards, create real-time or batch services, and develop ongoing services to monitor DQ levels.
