The Rising Demand for Industrial Data Quality
2560 1608 APERIO

In a large-scale industrial setting, the implications of poor-quality data can be unforgiving: Increasingly industrial leaders rely on data to drive operational decisions and if these decisions are based on poor data, it can result in a poor efficiency, breakdown of physical assets and even compromised on-site safety.

We recently conducted a survey in collaboration with the Gartner Peer Community in order to test the wider demand for data quality solutions among decision-makers in the oil & gas, chemicals, manufacturing, mining, power, and pharmaceutical industries. We wanted to find out to what degree technology leaders are prioritizing tackling their operational data issues.

The results are in, and they are promising. Below are few key highlights from the report, and some of our insights into its results. You can also download the full report here.
