Informatica Data Quality

We used Informatica Data Quality to measure the "Data Quality Score" of internal and external reports at my company. Business users set up data profiling and prepared detailed analysis documents for business analysts. and developers developed Data Quality Mapplets for other IT teams to import their Informatica Power Center repositories. Results are stored in a centralized data quality space and then reported and summarized to related business users in detailed ways.At the end of each project, we are now able to place a "Data Quality Score" watermark score on each report involved.

Talend Data Quality

Talend Data Quality integrates very well with Salesforce and this is one of the reasons that prompts me to recommend it to all my colleagues, it is true that the speed is not the best and that the learning curve is very steep, but based on my experience directly with Talend Data Quality I can say that these problems are solved and you can really have many positive results with Talend Data Quality.

Pros

Informatica Data Quality

  • The matching algorithms in IDQ are very powerful if you understand the different types that they offer (e.g., Hamming Distance, Jaro, Bigram, etc..). We had to play around with it to see which best suit our own needs of identifying and eliminating duplicate customers. Setting up the whole process (e.g., creating the KeyGenerator Transformation, setting up the matching threshold, etc..) can be somewhat time consuming and a challenge if you don't first standardize your data.
  • The integration with PowerCenter is great if you have both. You can either import your mappings directly to PowerCenter or to an XML file. The only downside is that some of the transformations are unique to IDQ, so you are not really able to edit them once in PowerCenter.
  • The standardizer transformation was key in helping us standardize our customer data (e.g., names, addresses, etc..). It was helpful due to having create a reference table containing the standardized value and the associated unstandardized values. What was great was that if you used Informatica Analyst, a business analyst could login and correct any of the values.

Talend Data Quality

  • It supports a wide variety of connectors (Systems/endpoints)
  • It provides great flexibility for developers as it not only has a lot of predefined ready to use the function but also provides the ability to use complex java code within the platform. Great tool if you have good developers available.

Cons

Informatica Data Quality

  • Several partnerships diminishing the value of technologies
  • Unable to get list of objects from Repository (like sources & targets) that don't have any dependency
  • Scheduling: The built-in scheduling tool has many constraints such as handling Unix/VB scripts etc. Most enterprises use third party tools for this.

Talend Data Quality

  • The print and export functionality are missing in the Community version which frustrates a lot of our clients as well as internal users.
  • The learning curve is very steep for all Talend products including DQ.
  • Lack of easy to create workflows for jobs that can be repeated.

As pointed out earlier, due all the robust features IDQ has, our use f the product is successful and stable. IDQ is being used in multiple sources (from CRM application and in batch mode). As this is an iterative process, we are looking to improve our system efficiency using IDQ.

At this moment the usability of Talend Data Quality is optimal, too bad I cannot say the same in the first three months, it was always a problem due to its steep learning curve, but what matters is being able to use it effectively at this precise moment.

Talend Data Quality gave us direct help in the learning process and prevented us from taking many more months to adapt and I appreciate this from the heart, I think that thanks to the support we can have very detailed reports that help increase the use of Talend Data Quality in the company.

Alternatives Considered

Informatica Data Quality

IDQ is used by a department at my organisation to ensure and enhance the data quality.
The usage was started with address standardization and now it had been brought to altogether a next level of quality check where it fixes duplicates, junk characters, standardize the names, streets, product descriptions.
In the past we had issues mainly with duplicate customers and products and this were affecting the sales projection and estimates.

Have tried AWS Data Migration Services to do this, but found it to be buggy and immature product. Also tried on - prem developed scripts to do the integration but could not scale as we intended.
