BILLERICA, MA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2010) -  Trillium Software, a business of Harte-Hanks, Inc. (NYSE: HHS) and a leading enabler of Total Data Quality solutions, today announced its lineup of Data Quality Forums for fall 2010, featuring customer case studies about how data quality and data governance deeply impact business processes and results, as well as a keynote by David Hatch, senior vice president and general manager, Aberdeen Group. The seminars will be held in Houston, Texas, Raleigh, North Carolina and Seattle, Washington.

"In the Data Quality Forums, I will be highlighting results of a new Aberdeen study that quantifies in granular terms how poor data quality affects and negatively impacts business results," said Mr. Hatch. "This information has not been unveiled to the public before now, and it is eye-opening at how business results and performance are profoundly tied to information quality."

These half-day seminars -- called Data Quality Forums -- are aimed at helping organizations understand how data governance supports, and in many cases drives, major business initiatives, while reinforcing the demand for a comprehensive data quality program that has the capacity to expand throughout the enterprise. Every Data Quality Forum will feature detailed discussions and presentations showcasing how data quality or data governance drove down business costs, improved campaign or data management results, and positively impacted customer business goals. Business and technical professionals responsible for master data management (MDM), customer relationship management (CRM), customer data integration (CDI), data warehousing, or data governance and risk compliance (GRC) are invited to attend these events. 

Data Quality Forums will be held in the following cities:

  • Houston, Texas -- Tuesday, October 19, 2010
  • Raleigh, North Carolina -- Thursday, October 21, 2010
  • Seattle, Washington -- Thursday, November 4, 2010
