Teknion Data Solutions announces the release of significant feature enhancements to Validatar, a data quality management platform developed by Teknion to “Improve Trust In Your Data” through the streamlining and automation of the discovery, testing & monitoring of an organization’s data assets.
Data quality continues to be a major impediment for organizations wanting to leverage their data to make accurate, informed business decisions. Forbes indicates that over “84% of organization executives don’t trust the data they are using to make important business decisions”. To further quantify the impact, Gartner estimates “on average, poor data quality cost organizations over $15M per year in lost opportunities”.
Why is it so hard for organizations to improve their data quality? One is the lack of understanding of the true impact data quality has to an organization. Two is the exponential growth in the amount of data organizations are trying to analyze. Three is the lack of a comprehensive solution to assist organizations in streamlining, automating and expanding data quality management, data governance and data testing capabilities.
That is why Teknion developed and continues to enhance and expand Validatar as a comprehensive data quality management solution.
Steve Agee, President and Co-Founder of Teknion states, “while originally developed internally to help our consultants streamline data testing while they were building out data warehouses for clients, we have invested extensively in Validatar to provide an Enterprise level software solution for both our consulting clients and organizations across the globe that want to increase data quality to improve the trust in their data. There really isn’t another solution in the market that provides to clients what Validatar does.”
