Data Quality - Shaken and Stirred

Presenter 1
Karsten Boye Rasmussen
University of Southern Denmark

Sometimes the platform for conference sessions is a scene changing underneath the presenters. Because our "data quality"-session had a cancellation the session will now include a non-advertised presentation by the session chair. The presentation will show some of the common dimensions and reasons behind the demand for data quality. However, because of the short notice for this presentation it will move in the direction of a short stand-up-sing-and-dance-show with audience participation. The subject for this ending presentation of the session will be an attack - hopefully a surprise attack - on the rationality that we expect from ourselves and other requestors of data. Especially when we repeatedly are demanding a higher data quality we have to ask the question: "Are we worth it?".
