Information Quality (IQ Scoring)

Presented by: Rodney Schackmann

IQScoring is an assessment methodology CQN is using across the company to help communicate the IQ state of key enterprise datasets and applications. It produces a simple metric that is easy to communicate to business stakeholders and management in a consistent way, encouraging IQ conversations where frequently overlooked or excluded.  We believe this technique can be a valuable tool in the hands of Data Scientists, Analysts, and Business Decision-Makers.


Rodney Schackmann joined Intel in 1993, with time in IT and business groups, he joined CQN in 2010 where he is currently a Sr. Staff Information Architect.

He is a frequent presenter at Information / Data Quality and Data Governance related conferences. His history includes software development, management, consulting, mentoring, and strategic technical leadership.

His time at Intel has primarily been focused on Key Information efforts — driving cross-organizational teams to better solutions with higher Information Quality results. Rodney currently runs the enterprise-wide Information Quality program for CQN.

An Introduction to Round Robin Databases

Presented by: Chris Irvine

As technology professionals, we see a increasing applications for telemetry, systems monitoring, and real-time trend analysis. In some situations, unbounded storage of collected measurements may be impractical or unnecessary. Round Robin Databases are designed to store and maintain multiple time-series archives at varying resolutions. They employ methods that allow the storage of months or even years of data.

We will explore one such tool, RRDtool, a project started at the Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis. At first, this open source tool helped with collecting and reporting on internet traffic. Since that time, it has inspired many other uses and tools. Our goal is to explore the retention decisions, downsampling of data consistent with it's business value, and how this approach is good for solving a specific class of problems.


Chris Irvine is a computer science graduate of Portland State University with professional experience in software development, system administration, and IT management. He is currently a Technology Consultant and founder at Threeprong.com, specializing in custom workgroup solutions, B2B integration, and performance tuning. Chris takes pleasure in applying technology to help solve problems for a variety of businesses and non-profits. Recent projects meet the needs of small business, workgroups in large enterprise, and also for government, in many segments and varied platforms.
