Organisational memory and data governance
We read this tweet, and it struck a chord with us...
It reminded us of a situation from a while back...
We can recall a situation from a customer embarking on a complex migration, who was convinced that their data was OK, so that no spend could be justified. We saw them a year later - the project had gone off the rails as the data migration had turned into a total nightmare. They conceded that their initial view was wrong. But now they couldn't justify any spend as they were past the worst of the problems, and it had been absorbed into the over-run development budget. So the situation was going to remain the same - live with data problems, fixing them as and when.
We've noted that the people who are interested in solutions, are typically people with history - they know just how much data problems can cost in the longer term.
There are many different ways of tackling Data Governance, and no one size fits all. DataQA for JIRA can help you by checking if rules are being met, and raising the problems direct in your issue management system.
