What Data Quality Means in Modern Times

 Anitesh Barua, a distinguished teaching professor and lead researcher at the University of Texas in Austin, has released a study which modifies traditional data quality models. "Barua has augmented the old data quality model with new attributes like intelligence, remote accessibility and sales mobility (data accessed through sales apps). He then measured 150 global Fortune 500 companies along these attributes as well as their overall performance to create a series of charts and graphs with which companies can measure certain financial metrics that are key indicators of competitiveness, health and profitability."
