Lets start with the need for Data Quality Console for an Intelligent Data Movement and Data Governance tool like InfoSphere Information Server. Suppose some records being analyzed by Information Analyzer does not meet the conditions of data rules (say a negative value for Age) an exception needs to be raised. Similarly other products can also raise exception when it requires additional information or investigation. InfoSphere Data Quality Console is a new unified, browser-based interface that we can use to monitor and track data quality exceptions that are generated by InfoSphere Information Server products and components. The following screen capture shows how you can view a subset of exception descriptors by specifying search criteria, which include search terms and attributes.
