DQM Group Receives Data Service Provider of the Year

Press release from the issuing company

(November 17, 2008) DQM Group, the data value management specialist, has won the accolade of Data Service Provider of the Year at the Data Strategy Awards 08. The awards acknowledge individuals and companies who are supporting the transformation of UK businesses into information-driven enterprises.

The Data Service Provider of the Year title recognises DQM Group's ability to support responsible data asset management by clients. The company helps businesses protect and grow the value of their data assets using unique products and services including tools to track data, undertake due diligence of data assets, conduct compliance audits and benchmarking to support data managers and large direct marketers across all aspects of data governance. The organisation also specialises in creating and growing value through data development.  A good example is its work with Royal Mail where DQM Group is helping it develop its valuable mover and other change data.

The award was presented at a ceremony on October 23rd at The Royal Lancaster Hotel in Hyde Park, London.

Adrian Gregory, Chief Executive, DQM Group, comments: "Data governance covering security and identity theft, data quality and the environment, not least increasing regulation around use of data, are major current issues and we are delighted to be recognised for our work in trying to improve data best practice for clients and more broadly within the market.

In the DM industry the misuse of lists is once again on the rise. This is having a disproportionate affect on the public's perceptions in a world where concerns about data privacy and security are being heightened by high-profile data breaches. Businesses must be seen to be protecting their data and rigorous policing of marketing lists and customer data has to be maintained in this climate if brand value is to be preserved."
