Established in the 1980s at the MIT
Sloan School of Management, the Total Data Quality
Management Program (TDQM) is the first of its kind data quality research
initiative in the world. It has formed the foundation and shaped the direction of the data quality field. TDQM's research effort has been grown from
industry needs for high quality data. The overall objective of this program was to
establish a solid theoretical foundation in this embryonic field and, from this
work, to devise practical methods for business and industry to improve data
quality. We develop tools and other capabilities necessary for data quality
management in the technical, economic, and organizational phases of business
Since 2003, the majority of activities of the TDQM Program were integrated with the MIT Information Quality Program. The TDQM website represents activity prior to that point, and all other information can be found here on the MITIQ website.
