In today’s information-centric era, unprecedented growth in the volume, variety and velocity of data means integrating trusted information is critical to ensure that business projects and key analytics initiatives will be successful. If records have errors, defects or omissions, vital transactions can be lost. Industry surveys report that up to 70 percent of major companies currently experience defective data in substantial volume, resulting in billing inaccuracies, loss of revenue and misinterpreted results. IBM’s data integration portfolio offers you agile integration, business-driven governance and sustainable data quality.
“An effective information supply chain can help companies enhance customer satisfaction, increase management control and improve business results.”
