Why Data Quality Matters
This imperative to improve data quality has become more critical with the emergence of big data strategies. Increasing data volumes make the issue of data quality more important than ever.
The goal is for data to be complete such that, for example, all disparate pieces of data for a single customer are linked. Data also needs to be clean with automatic elimination of typos and abbreviation errors.
Data Quality Improvement Strategies
Among the most common strategies for improving data quality are:
Parsing and standardizing data. Data is broken up into multiple structured elements and then each element is standardized according to predefined rules.
Matching and merging data. Data records that look similar are automatically flagged as possible matches, and if they are found to be matches the records are then merged.
Case management. Some data records will be found to be incomplete or erroneous. This problematic data is automatically flagged and placed in a queue where it can be investigated and remediated later.
Address Verification: Checking format and that address represent a real physical location.
Data Quality Benefits

Pricing InformationCloud security software for business varies greatly in price depending on capabilities and scalability.
