Quality of data is metricized along the dimensions of correctness, completeness, and consistency. Correctness is when data needs to be statistically or exactly matched. Completeness is when data needs to be aggregated. Consistency is when data needs to be standardized across participants. It is crucial to have high quality data in order to gain the relevant business insights from data analysis/visualization, artificial intelligence, machine learning and distributed ledger applications.
