Eighty-seven percent of state and local government respondents in a recent Center for Digital Government survey say they spend at least one hour per day gathering information as a result of poor data quality.

In addition to creating massive inefficiencies, poor data quality – often caused by a reliance on paper-based processes that are prone to human error – has a negative impact on agency workflow and affects constituents by increasing processing and wait times for services. At the same time, it can impede agencies from taking advantage of new technologies. Forty-one percent of CDG survey respondents said their data quality is not high enough to realize the benefits of artificial intelligence and predictive analytics.
