Sometime back I had an introduction on the need of Data Cleansing and the power of InfoSphere Quality Stage. In this series, I plan to take a closer look on Quality Stage’s various parts and capabilities.
IBM QualityStage allows us to use the following processes to analyze the data,to Cleanse/Standardize data, Match Various data and create one unique view of an entity:
- Investigation — Helps to understand the nature and scope of data anomalies
- Standardization — Parses individual fields and makes them uniform according to business standards
- Matching — Identifies duplicate records within and across data sources
- Survivorship — Helps eliminate duplicate records and create the best-breed record of data
To take a closer look at each of the above steps you can click them to go to one of the detailed blogs explaining them.
