Going from GIGO to QIQO

Why do we all know GIGO, but not quality in, quality out (QIQO)? It seems like an awfully pessimistic approach to data management that we only talk about the garbage, but not about the quality. Maybe it’s time to live in a world where QIQO is the default?

Quality In, Quality Out

The logic is simple. In a GIGO world, we worry about dirty data. We should be concerned about dirty data, of course, but a philosophy of QIQO would use quality data as a starting point, and assume that we can keep our data of high quality.

With most other things, the default assumption is a clean starting point. A restaurant kitchen has clean as the default, so that when it gets dirty through a meal service, it is then cleaned and restored to default. Shouldn't we take the same approach to data?

After all, that data informs so many of the day-to-day decisions on which our businesses run. And some of the big strategic decisions as well. So why is it reasonable that data should be dirty by default, that GIGO is a way of life?

We all need a QIQO mindset.
