Short description Informal and short human-readable definition of a concept. Continuous updates of global data requirements due to legal changes or data standards.
Description Informal and comprehensive human-readable definition of a concept. Data quality is, beside other factors, compliance of given data to laws and standards, i.e. data requirements. Such requirements come from national regulation and change over time. Clients have to track such requirements country by country and continuously. For many (and a growing number of) countries, officially registered company information is provided as Open Data. Such reference data does not follow any standardized data model or data provision. Identification, integration, and continuous updates cause effort for each data source. The Data Sharing Community collaborates on identifying data requirements globally. The same for identifying reference data sources, both Open Data and commercial. CDQ collects all such information, machine-readable in a semantic graph, as well-structured metadata. CDQ derives data quality rules from this semantic metadata, automatically, for measuring data quality. And CDQ automatically integrates all reference data into a Data Pool. All metadata and reference data is accessible also for Clients, both documented for humans and machine-readable, in this wiki.
