Product Description

Continuing Efforts Toward Data Standardization

PV: Why is data standardization so important?
Brown Stafford: Lack of standardization often leads to undesirable outcomes. One simple example that is often cited in such discussions is the fact that electrical outlets in different countries for example, the United States and countries in Europe, require different plugs, and hence an electrical device purchased in one country may well not work in another. Fortunately, this particular issue is easily remedied by using a converter, a device that effectively facilitates standardization and interoperability.
