Conversion Services International Announces Data Quality Competency Center Offering

Helps businesses minimize risks and costs associated with flawed data

EAST HANOVER, N.J. (June 15, 2005) -- Conversion Services International, Inc. (CSI), a premier professional services firm focused on delivering the value in business intelligence, data warehousing and data management solutions to Global 2000 organizations and other businesses, today announced the details of its Data Quality Competency Center (DQCC) offering. DQCC helps organizations improve their data quality by standardizing enterprise data processes and procedures, creating and validating business rules and defining the people, process, data, and technologies needed to establish metrics and drive return on investment.

Based on CSI's long-standing belief that an effective data-quality improvement program need only be put into action once to serve as the mechanism for ongoing identification, evaluation, and institutionalization of improvements in data quality, DQCC implementation is driven by CSI experts who execute the client's own DQCC onsite. These same experts develop and ensure data-quality processes and procedures are followed by transferring the necessary knowledge to the client's team.

Tim Furey, CSI's CTO, said, "The ownership of data quality has been quite often brushed under the table. Is it an IT issue, a business unit issue, or both? The probability of business-critical projects failing because companies are not fully examining anomalies, redundancies, and inaccuracies in their sources of data is high and cannot be ignored. Plus, management decisions based on faulty or incomplete information could put a company in the red or, even worse, cause significant compliance issues."

He continued, "CSI's Data Quality Competency Center includes proven solutions that enable companies to move, clean, scrub, align, integrate and consolidate data before they use it. We implement technologies that automate a fact-driven baseline process that sets in motion continuous data quality improvement through data defect detection and reduction. These checks and balances help raise the level of corporate awareness regarding the benefits of improved information quality."

CSI's Data Quality Competency Center solution is best suited for mid- to large-sized organizations seeking to consolidate multiple data sources to support better business decisions, and can be tailored for any organization based on their specific business requirements. CSI's Data Quality Competency Center can support either departmental or enterprise level data quality programs. More information, including the free white paper, can be accessed at
