Royal Wedding Data Quality Challenges

[tweetmeme source=”jeric40”

Now we have the proof, having blue blood in your veins, is not a vaccine against the challenges of Data Quality.  H.M Carl XVI Gustaf has now experienced this the hard way.  His daughter H.R.H Crown Princess Victoria will marry Daniel Westling in Stockholm on June 19th 2010.   The wedding will be grand with many guests from near and far.

One invited guest is not welcome, a journalist Håkan Kjellberg was invited.  The invitation has now been retracted, and he is no longer welcome in the wedding.  No, he has not written about Royal scandals or anything like that, he is just the wrong Håkan Kjellberg.  The right Håkan is a colleague of Mr. Westling and work in his Gym.

It is not so good when you think about the security the Royal Family is set under. This common mistake could have been avoided with the proper Data Quality checks in order.

Here is an article about it in Swedish, and one in Norwegian.  You can use Google Translate to get the meaning!

Anyway, congratulations to the happy couple!
