Data Quality Enlightenment

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Five-Fold Path for Ensuring Data = Information, which I drew upon Buddha’s Eight-Fold Path for inspiration.

But to really understand the practices of the eight-fold path, you need to understand the underlying doctrines that motivate it. In Buddhism, those tenets are outlined in the Four Noble Truths.

The five-fold path describes what you need to do to achieve data quality, but that still doesn’t define the realities that drive us to pursue data quality.
