Companies want data they can rely on, but data changes quickly

How can they keep up with the heavy burden of master data maintenance? With constantly cleaned and enriched data, we help you create trusted customer and vendor master data that paves the way to seamless data-driven processes, better business decisions, and to maximize the potential of data for true innovation. CDQ brings master data automation to the data economy. Our vision for your business partner data: zero maintenance, 100% quality.

CDQ enables large enterprises to tackle data quality and data maintenance efforts collaboratively. This results in high master data quality with low manual efforts for our customers. We achieve this by validating against 2,300+ data quality rules, continuously updating existing records, and enriching missing information. Pulling from more than 70 external reference data sources such as open data, commercial registers, third-party services, and shared data from the community, our data quality solutions provide the best master data quality.

CDQ (which stands for Corporate Data Quality) emerged from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, and has more than 17 years of data management expertise, spending years on researching how to create and maintain trusted customer and vendor master data. Many well-known global companies from different industries already rely on our CDQ Suite, which offers Data Quality as a Service (DQaaS) and collaborative data management to reduce their data maintenance costs significantly.
