The main difference between this and previous surveys is that we are asking that you respond for a single domain (customer, material, vendor) per survey
(you can take it more than once if you have input for multiple domains). In previous surveys, the majority of respondents were only able to complete the
questions for one domain with a level of confidence. This change will allow for a cleaner analysis.
This survey will be used for benchmarking what companies are measuring, and not the quality of your data. That will be a future topic focused on the popular
areas of measurement.
Before you take the survey, we recommend you have the list of what your company is measuring and the ASUG Taxonomy Handbook (available on the ASUG Data Governance SIG discussion board as well as at www.DataIntent-LLC.com, or on the LinkedIn discussion group: ASUG Data Quality Controls Taxonomy). Some questions will refer to the number of queries you are measuring by the taxonomy categories.
Please do not get caught up in precision; it is better to have many participants and be close, than for us to lose your input because you are overly precise about the numbers of queries by taxonomy node.
This survey is divided into three main parts: demographics, master data controls poll (customer, material or vendor) and operations; followed by a few
questions about the survey itself including an opt-in opportunity should you like to see the results. In order to qualify to see the composite data, you must
complete 29 of the 43 questions. Everyone qualifies for the summary report, which will be available in the near future on the ASUG website and through
We expect this survey to take about 20 minutes and assure you all individual responses are confidential.
As long as you return to the survey from the same PC, you may save and return to the same survey (this will help you to collaborate).
If at any time you would like assistance with this survey or the ASUG Taxonomy Handbook, please reply to the discussion thread, or email [email protected] or any member on the steering committee for data quality metrics found at the end of the survey.
We welcome your participation in this survey - please contact any steering committee member with questions or respond to the discussion on the website.
