Lyn, I totally agree on the picture of reality approach.

According to Wikipedia data may be of high quality in two alternative ways:

• Either they are fit for their intended uses
• Or they correctly represent the real-world construct to which they refer

When data quality becomes enterprise wide we have to take several different purposes in consideration – not at least in master data management.

My thesis is that there is a break even point when including more and more purposes where it will be less cumbersome to reflect the real world object rather than trying to align all known purposes.
