Systems for data confidence

When investing in systems,

make sure they inspire confidence in the people who use them.

A system will inspire confidence if it delivers data that is complete, consistent, secure and accessible by the right people.  As confidence builds, trust will follow – that the applications and algorithms that use the data will deliver the right results.

Sourcing the right data

The steps to building that confidence start with sourcing the right data.

Data is created when records of events are produced, measurements are taken, characteristics or features within something or someone are captured and stored. 

The system for sourcing data may be as simple as listing events in a book, or as complex as detecting when an event happens, or  searching social media accounts for specific names.

Data sourcing for data confidence

Whichever system it is the outcome must be the same – an accurate record with every part of it recorded the same way.  It has to be as free as possible from human error, unwanted inputs, system inteference, and duplications.

Data confidence requires data integrity

Whichever system it is the outcome must be the same – an accurate record with every part of it recorded the same way.  It has to be as free as possible from human error, unwanted inputs, system inteference, and duplications.

Achieving data integrity

Systems can ensure that none of the above can happen.  E.g. manually inputted data can be checked for errors, duplications can be prevented, unwanted inputs can be detected and barred. 

And sound governance practices can ensure that data is only where it should be, with the right labels, and that it is accessed by only those with a need to use it.

Producing the right information

With data integrity achieved, attention can turn to the applications and algorithms that turn the data into information and intelligence. 

The questions they are designed to answer must be relevant and timely.  And the answers provided must be clear, easily grasped, and interpreted the same way – by everyone involved.

We build systems the drive data confidence

  • Systems for creating and sourcing data.
  • Systems and processes for achieving data integrity.
  • Algorithms and applications that turn quality data into information, insights and intelligence.
