If bad data is put into a data warehouse, companies risk what Tony Fisher, president and general manager at DataFlux, described as "code, load and explode." "If the data from a source system doesn't meet the expected qualities for that data, the loading process may fail, causing the company to stop the load process and try again," Fisher said, which leads to implementations that exceed time schedules and budgets.

“Twentieth century systems are failing to manage 21st century risks; we need new networked systems to identify and address global risks before they become global crises,” said Robert Greenhill, Managing Director and Chief Business Officer at the World Economic Forum.

In my recent risk survey on LinkedIn, only 26% of the respondents said they have no problems with the data in their systems. Does that mean that 74% of corporate risk reports and a large number of regulatory compliance calculations are sucked out of useless data of varied degrees? The quantity of data is often so impressive that people forget that the underlying quality might be bad. (Or is confirmed bad like the 74% of recent survey respondents)

We have been talking about data issues since 2003, but nobody is fixing the quality problems.

How does the tech industry compare to other industries when it comes to diversity?
Tech firms have been working much harder than others to achieve diversity.
Tech is rife with sexism, racism, homophobia and other forms of discrimination.
The tech industry would be more inclusive if there were more qualified applicants.
Tech firms have made superficial efforts but they're mainly for show.
The push for diversity is a cultural fad, and there is no real problem.
