Global Data Excellence


We are living in an interesting period of history where information is
becoming a key resource in our day to day life. The world is changing
more quickly than ever particularly in the area of multi-channel data
flows.  Furthermore, this data can have many and complex forms; we
cite natural language as an example of such.

The paradigm shift from the industrial age to the information age is
already impacting our behaviour and we are becoming more and more data
and information consumers. We are demanding on a daily basis for
just-in-time data and information in order to take decisions or
actions. The quality of these decisions and actions will depend highly
on the quality of data that we use. In the context of globalization,
of new technology and of energy volatility, it is clear that we will
be demanding accurate data to aid in our choices and decisions. We
believe that data and information are key to global sustainability.

Therefore, it is imperative to define frameworks, models,
methodologies and tools in order to ensure continuous global data
excellence and to strive for data pollution prevention.  List of
