The Dangers of Dirty Data: Causes & Solutions with Navneet Makhni
Poor quality data costs the government, businesses, and society every single day. Yet, it’s never a point of discussion in the grand scheme of data management plans. Companies spend millions on data infrastructure but little on data quality improvement - and that's where we want to bring in change.

Navneet will share her experiences and data governance guidelines to reduce the impact of dirty data on business objectives.
In an action-driven conversation about dirty data and the immediate steps your company can take to improve its data quality.
Join us as we break down the causes of dirty data and discover viable solutions that can be implemented without costing a fortune.
