New Research From Experian Data Quality Reveals Businesses Hindered by Lack of Reliable and Consolidated Data Sources

While the Majority of Companies Invest in Analytics, Most Struggle to Link Data Across Channels

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/26/14 -- Experian Data Quality, a part of Experian Marketing Services and a leading provider of data quality software and services, today announced the release of a new research study Finding insight through data collection and linkage. The study finds that while most organizations are looking to leverage data better to drive consumer insight, poor data collection and linkage practices are leaving organizations unable to move forward with key business goals.

"While most organizations have started Big Data programs and are investing in analytics, the majority of companies still struggle to collect accurate data and link customer information across channels to develop reliable data sources," said Thomas Schutz, senior vice president and general manager for Experian Data Quality. "This lack of insight creates operational challenges as well as issues with business intelligence, personalization and customer engagement."

Experian Data Quality also found that:

  • Eighty-three percent of companies have started a Big Data program
  • Ninety-four percent of companies believe their customer and prospect data might be inaccurate in some way
  • Eight-three percent of companies struggle to link customer information across channels

"The data-driven culture in which we operate today does not function without a foundation of data quality," added Schutz. "Organizations need to review data collection and linkage practices to take advantage of their data sources better for insight."
