AI, machine learning, and edge com­puting may be all around us, and these technology endeavors all have one important thing in common: Their suc­cess depends on the quality of the data fed into them.

Eight in 10 orga­nizations' data quality efforts are lagging or problematic. These are among the findings of a new survey of 238 data managers conducted by Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today, Inc., in partnership with Melissa.
