Datadupitis - definition(s)

Datadupitis - The process of inadvertently duplicating data, thereby creating excessive database customer records. (Example: A customer record listed as John Q. Smith also appears as John Smith, Jon Q. Smith, and John Q. Smithe. Mr. Smith's records contain the same fields (i.e., address, company, phone number); however, datadupitis incorrectly labels Mr. Smith's records as separate individuals.)
