Data Curation  & Data Quality


Data Curation is recognized as a critical activity to improve data analytics efficiency. "Curation" is the process of assembling, organizing, and managing a collection of objects. By extension, data asset curation is the process of assembling, organizing, and managing a collection of data assets. We should adjust this definition, however, to account for context and purpose within a community of data consumers, since data assets that are not shared (or positioned to be shared) would not be subjected to data curation. Therefore, a better definition (or description) of data asset curation would be the process of assembling, organizing, and managing a collection of data assets for the purpose of expanding data accessibility and sharing among a community of data consumers. In this talk, we will explore ideas and methods that help achieve the objectives of data asset curation, including: Simplifying discoverability of existing data assets. Providing details of data asset structure. Providing details of data asset semantics. Capturing the provenance of any enhancements or modifications applied to a curated data asset. Providing a means of sharing information about the curated data assets. Establishing standards for transformation and integration of shared data domains. Finally, we will discuss how the practices of data curation will facilitate improved data quality.
