Loreto in the Media

Gian wrote this article for TDWI's year end publication last year. It's a letter to Santa, if you think it's silly, please drop us a line and let us know! http://tdwi.org/articles/2011/12/09/open-letter-to-santa-bi-subjects.aspx

Gian wrote a well received article for a recent TDWI newletter discussing how to sell a data qualtiy solution. It's somewhat of a different approach than we have used in the past, but as times change and budgets tighten, we have to adapt our techniques. http://tdwi.org/articles/2012/03/13/Selling-a-Data-Quality-Project.aspx

Gian gave a webinar on data profiling tools for IAIDQ that turned out to be their most highly attended webinar since they started the program! We are very proud. If you have free hour, please listen to the recorded webinar, let us know if any of the jokes are any good. http://iaidq.org/webinars/2012-02-28.shtml

Gian's discussion in last summer's TDWI online publication discussed best practices of Data Qualtiy and Data Cleansing. It was very well received and you can expect further content in this publication in the near future.

Loreto’s treatment of the many impacts of poor data quality was the featured article in the July/August 2008 volume of the prestigious Journal of Compensation and Benefits. In the article, CEO Gian Di Loreto addresses the costs to both a company’s bottom line - as well as its employees’ lives and morale - when data quality problems aren’t recognized and addressed systemically.

Loreto was interviewed by Employee Benefit News, who were especially interested in the cost-effectiveness of implementing a pension data cleansing program. Read the interview at http://ebn.benefitnews.com/asset/article/399395/staying-current/waste-not-want-not.html

Read our analysis of outsourcing trends in Pension Administration – and the benefits of ‘midsourcing’ – in the article The Easy Way “Out”: Midsourcing Your Pension Fund Management, originally published in Employee Benefit Plan Review, July 2007. (Also, for an overview of the problems of bringing pension fund data analysis into the 21st Century, see our earlier article in EBPR: Data, Data Everywhere, and None of It of Use)
