Message from Scott Ambler –

For my friends in the IT world:

As many of you know, for years now I have been running surveys to explore what is actually happening in the IT industry. I always share the results of the survey, including the questions as asked, the answers as provided, and my analysis online once the survey is over.

Recently I updated our State of Data Quality survey, it’s been a few years since we ran it, which explores whether organizations are adopting concrete approaches to find and fix potential quality problems in their databases. If you are currently working at an organization that has databases running in production I would appreciate it if you take a few minutes to fill out this survey. The survey, which is a max of 14 questions, can be found at 2016 Data Quality Survey. Click here to take the survey.
