Data.com Connect is a powerful resource that leverages the strength of over 2 million people to the benefit of every one of our members. Cloud resources like Connect are great tools, because instead of thousands of people having to do the same work, everyone benefits from the work done by each person!
We are excited to present the first publication in a new series of contribution guidelines – our updated Contact Add & Update Guidelines. The goals of this new series are to promote a better awareness of the basic principles all members should adhere to in adding or updating data, and to educate new users of the system.
I am happy to share some exciting news regarding the impact of our ongoing efforts to improve email deliverability and overall data quality. Data quality is so important to us that we have recently formed a new Data Stewardship team to focus on quality analysis and improvements, and this project is one of their top priorities.
It is my pleasure to share with you the latest data quality assurance pilot we are getting ready to roll out: Contact Title Assurance and Improvements. The deployment of Pinger 2.0 provided significant improvements in email deliverability assessment, and we look forward to the higher quality titles this next project will bring.
For those of you I have not yet met, I am the Director for Data Quality at data.com and have been enjoying interacting and brainstorming with many of you since I came on board last December. The Annual Rainmaker Event in Las Vegas was full of support and good ideas.
