Built On Now

Digital Ecosystems are Dependent on Reliable and Consistent Data

Operational business activities require correctly defined and up-to-date data. Without it, activities such as auto assignments, root cause & impact analysis, service automation, approvals and reporting are prone to failure. Yet, planned data models and real-life data do not often match.

Data models are seldom realized in real life since they’re typically designed outside, and implemented inside the platform. Human error and complexity of systems causes data degradation over time. Bad Data leads to expensive problems.

The Rule of 10: “It costs 10 times as much to complete a unit of work when the input data are defective as it does when they are perfect.”

– Thomas C. Redman

Without active maintenance, data will degradate over time. As a result, credible sources suggest that due to bad data 85% of CMDB projects fail (Forbes), 70% of Digital Transformation Projects fail (McKinsey), and 50% of Knowledge workers’ time is wasted (Harvard Business Review).
