Data Quality Sonnet

Celebrating National Poetry Day with words from one of our authors, Dan Dutrow.

“I would define … the Poetry of words as The Rhythmical Creation of Beauty.” — Edgar Allan Poe, from “The Poetic Principle.”

Data Quality Sonnet

What would you make of the masterpieces; 

If something about them were just not right;

Michelangelo’s David with fig leaves;

Or Mona Lisa who wasn’t uptight.

When sculptors create their artistic work;

Bringing a keen and focused attention;

From within marble metamorphic rock;

They chip away any imperfection.

How useful are your data warehouses;

After spending way too much to migrate;

If they contain anomalous values;

You’ll need therapy to quell the self-hate.

Quickly inspect what is erroneous;

Keep only good data and not bogus.
