Web Seminar Overview:

To applications, data is everything and it drives what a DBA does. Bad data produces bad results for what an application is designed for. But bad data does not just live in databases; it permeates all of IT. How can a DBA make a decision about something when he or she has multiple sources of what may or may not be the truth? In the first part of this webcast, Allan Hirt will discuss how quality information matters outside of the application and how to approach keeping it clean in your day-to-day capacity as an administrator or architect.

In the second part of the webcast, Joseph Vertido, Data Quality Analyst at Melissa Data, will delve into Data Quality Services (DQS), Microsoft’s innovative solution for Data Quality and Data Cleansing from a Knowledge Driven Standpoint. Joseph will discuss the key concepts behind Knowledge Driven Data Quality, how to implement a Data Quality Project, and how to build and improve your Knowledge Base through Domain Management and Knowledge Discovery.
