It is imperative that all organisations can achieve maximum value from business-critical applications. The Oracle Enterprise Data Quality family of products helps organisations do just that.

According to Debbie Fernandes, Business Unit Head - Oracle Services at iOCO, these products deliver fit-for-purpose data, for improved operational efficiency; the identification of new opportunities; and better compliance with industry and/or government regulations.
