Overall Satisfaction with Informatica Data Quality
We use Informatica Data Quality IDQ to validate customer and vendor addresses and to insure there are no duplicates. We also use it to verify consistency in product descriptions.
- Each night we process every customer, vendor and product. We generate reports of exceptions and these are distributed to the stewards of the data to allow them to correct issues.
- IDQ has extreme flexibility in how you create rules to identify what is out of compliance. No matter how complex your rules, it will likely handle it in an easy to program user interface.
- It is not the cheapest solution, but at this time I believe it is the best solution. Knowing your customers and accurately managing them justify getting the best product.
- The investment will result in more accurate revenue and cost per customer. Your data warehouse reporting will be more accurate and actionable.
We looked at other products. It was an easy decision because we already had experience with Informatica PowerCenter.
