You’ll start with general concepts of measurement and work your way through a detailed framework of more than three dozen measurement types related to five objective dimensions of quality: completeness, timeliness, consistency, validity, and integrity.

You’ll come away able to prioritize which measurement types to implement, knowing where to place them in a data flow and how frequently to measure. Common conceptual models for defining and storing of data quality results for purposes of trend analysis are also included as well as generic business requirements for ongoing measuring and monitoring including calculations and comparisons that make the measurements meaningful and help understand trends and detect anomalies. Demonstrates how to leverage a technology independent data quality measurement framework for your specific business priorities and data quality challenges Enables discussions between business and IT with a non-technical vocabulary for data quality measurement Describes how to measure data quality on an ongoing basis with generic measurement types that can be applied to any situation

The procurement of public ICT equipment is forecast to increase from £2.7 billion in 2005-06 to £4.1 billion by 2010-11 (an increase in volume from 1.7 to 2.6 million units). It is therefore important that public bodies understand how they can generate value from disposals, whilst being clear about their statutory and ethical responsibilities. However best practice in this area is unclear. This report is the first attempt to identify the potential for getting value from ICT disposal, whilst considering the wider environmental costs. One of the findings is that on average the public sector keeps equipment for just under 5 years old when disposal becomes a net cost. The commercial sector typically disposes of equipment after 3 years when there is still some residual value. If this had been done by public bodies the estimated saving in 2005-06 would have been £70 million.
