Quality data is not a luxury it is an operational, regulatory and statutory requirement.
 
Quality Data and Information

Data and information quality are now widely  recognized problems in companies large and  small, ranging from manufacturing and  processing, to finance and health care.  Incomplete or duplicate records, poor quality  descriptions and inaccurate information  cause inefficient allocation and use of  resources. This can add up to a 20% increase  to direct and indirect costs. Poor quality data  is a barrier to effective marketing and the  leading cause of transparency issues that  drive up the cost of regulatory compliance.

The Purpose of ISO 8000

The purpose of ISO 8000 is to make it easier to  contract for quality data and to identify  companies and software applications that  can deliver quality data. ISO 8000 quality  data is “portable data that meets stated  requirements.” Portable data is data that can  be separated from a software application.  This is important because if the data can only  be used or read using a specific licensed  software application then the data is also  subject to the terms of the license – basically  what you think of as “your data” may not in  reality belong to you and what you can do  with the data may be restricted by the terms  of the software license. You can still buy and  sell ISO 8000 quality data but it will not be  linked to a software application. Separating  data from software is also very important  when it comes the long term preservation of data. Data that meets stated requirements is a reference to the fact that you measure the quality of data by comparing data to a “stated” data requirement. ISO 22745-30 is the preferred standard for stating data requirements in XML as well as for exchanging portable data. ISO 22745 creates portable data by labeling the data using an ISO 22745 compliant Open Technical Dictionary such as the ECCMA Open Technical Dictionary (eOTD).
