Dirty Data / Nursing Informatics Reading and Sharing

Data are classified as “dirty” when the database contains errors that render the data inaccurate. This compromises the data integrity. Dirty data may result from human errors in entering data, such as misspelling a name or incorrectly entering an ID number. Dirty data may also result from viruses, worms, or other bugs installed into a system. Hackers may enter a system and alter or remove data. Hardware and software may fail, corrupting or destroying data.

It is rather unfortunate that over the last years, the travel industry has already been able to to deal with terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, as well as first ever true global tough economy. Through all this the industry has really proven to be strong, resilient in addition to dynamic, getting new strategies to deal with misfortune. There are always fresh challenges and chance to which the industry must yet again adapt and react.
