What’s ‘Good Enough’ Data Quality?

When you dig into data quality—and more of you are—you’ll hear a lot about “good enough” data quality.

But what the heck does that mean? And how do you know if you’ve achieved it? Data folks have long understood that data quality is a continuum. Data quality comes with an associated cost and, at some point, that cost is not worth paying to further “perfect” the data; hence, the concept of “good enough” data quality.
