Is Your Data Dirty?
Don't look now, but your data may be dirty. And that dirty data could be costing your business thousands of dollars. You're not alone, though. One recent study concluded that at least 25% of the average B2B database is "dirty." On one level, data decay is inevitable. In fact, 20% of all street addresses and 18% of telephone numbers change in a given year, while anywhere from 25% to 33% of your email addresses will be outdated within the same period. Over the next hour, 58 different business addresses will change, 11 companies will switch names and 41 new businesses will hit the market.
