This is the single best book ever written on data quality. Clear, concise, and actionable. We all want to leverage our data resources to drive growth, but we too often ignore the fundamentals of data quality, which almost always inhibits our success. Tom lays out a clear path for each organization to holistically improve not only its data quality, but more importantly the performance of its business as a whole.
--Jeffrey G. McMillan, Chief Analytics and Data Officer, Morgan Stanley
This book lays out the roles everyone, up and down the organization chart, can and must play to ensure that data is up to the demands of its use, in day-in, day-out work, decision-making, planning, and analytics.
By now, everyone knows that bad data extorts an enormous toll, adding huge (though often hidden) costs, and making it more difficult to make good decisions and leverage advanced analyses. While the problems are pervasive and insidious, they are also solvable! As Tom Redman, "the Data Doc," explains in Getting in Front on Data, the secret lies in getting the right people in the right roles to "get in front" of the management and social issues that lead to bad data in the first place.
Everyone should see himself or herself in this book. We are all both data customers and data creators--Getting in Front on Data proposes new roles for data professionals as:
Data quality has always been important. But now, in the growing digital economy where business transactions and customer experiences are automated and tailored, data quality is critical. This book comes just in time.
- embedded data managers, in helping data customers and creators complete their work,
- DQ team leads, in connecting customers and creators, pulling the entire program together, and training people on their new roles,
- data maestros, in providing deep expertise on the really tough problems,
- chief data architects, in establishing common data definitions, and
- technologists, in increasing scale and decreasing unit cost.
--Maria C. Villar, Global Vice President, SAP America, Inc.Winning, and more importantly thriving, in the digital age requires more than stating "Data is a strategic corporate asset." Leaders and organizations need a plan of action to make the new vision a reality. Tom's latest book is a how-to for those seeking that reality.
--Bob Palermo, Vice President, Performance Excellence, Shell UnconventionalsMany, if not most, companies still struggle with their data.

It is a "must read" for the employees of any organization expecting to remain relevant and competitive.
