How can you solve your data quality pain with ISO 8000?
Abstract:This series of articles taken together explain how ISO 8000can be part of your digital strategy. This International Standard can help to increase productivity in your organization, and cut the cost of a data cleansing or data onboarding projects. In this article, part one, of the five-part series, we explain both what a data dictionary is, and what international registration data identifiers are.read more

In this article, part two, of the five-part series, we explain the role of the data specification in improving data quality.read more
Abstract: How do you create a data specification to ensure good quality master data?
The basic ISO 8000 data architecture is outlined in this model, and you will see that the data specification is at the heart of the architecture.
Abstract: This series of articles taken together explain how ISO 8000 can be part of your digital strategy, how the standard can help to increase productivity in your organisation and how the standard can cut the cost of a data cleansing or data onboarding project. In this article, part four, of the five-part series, we explain how to create a catalogue item, and how to render short and long descriptions from that catalogue item.read more
Abstract: This series of articles taken together explain how ISO 8000 can be part of your digital strategy. This International Standard can help to increase productivity in your organization, and cut the cost of a data cleansing or data onboarding projects. In the final article in this series, we explain how cataloguing at source can simultaneously cut costs and increase the quality output of your data cleansing or data onboarding project.read more
Abstract: As companies seek more interoperability of systems, quality digital data becomes more important than ever. ISO 8000, the international data quality standard, is at the forefront of digital data, and two new parts, covering identifiers, are especially important to the future of the smart supply chain.read more
Abstract: Oil and gas upstream projects typically extract material requirements from Spare Parts Interchange Lists (SPILs), sometimes referred to as Spares Parts Interchange Records (SPIRs) or Recommended Spare Parts List (RSPL). These lists are supplied to the owner / operator (O/O) at handover by the Engineering Procurement Contractor (EPC) having been supplied to the EPC by the manufacturer or the vendor of the equipment. In this article, Peter Eales provides an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of this type of document, and questions why in the era of digital data this format is still widely used.read more
Abstract: In the rush to improve oversight and transparency in the wake of the 2008 Credit Crisis, central banks, treasuries and regulatory authorities created the Legal Entity Identifier (the “LEI”).
The LEI was an intuitive reaction to the lack of basic identity resolution and counterparty risk management in some of the complex structured securities that were at the heart of the scandal.read more
Abstract: “Industrie 4.0” (Industry 4.0 (I40)) is a national strategic initiative from the German government through the Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWI). It aims to drive digital manufacturing forward by increasing digitisation and the interconnection of products, value chains and business models. It also aims to support research, the networking of industry partners and standardisation.read more
Abstract: Project Iceberg is an exploratory project undertaken by Future Cities Catapult, British Geological Survey (BGS) and Ordnance Survey (OS). The project aims to address the serious issue of the lack of information about the ground beneath our cities and the un-coordinated way in which the subsurface space is managed.
Difficulties relating to data capture and sharing of information about subsurface features are well understood by some sectors and have been explored in previous research and industry reports, many of which are highlighted in this report. This study does not replicate past work, but rather reviews outcomes and explores the barriers to wider uptake of subsurface management systems within integrated city management.
The long-term goal is to help increase the viability of land for development and de-risk future investment through better management of subsurface data. To help achieve this, our study aims to enable a means to discover and access relevant data about the ground’s physical condition and assets housed within it, in a way that is suitable for modern, data driven decision-making processes.read more
