Overall Satisfaction

IDQ was purchased at Apollo about a week before I was hired and my first primary duty was to get the tool up and going (infrastructure, install, config, staff). It was used to present quality scorecards to data stewards/owners
  • The tool was designed with the intent to link quality to the data steward/owner
  • The functionality from the ETL allowed for great flexibility when designing quality filters
  • The tool is a profiling tool that is completly disconnected from ETL flow so no realtime processing
  • The sheduling is apalling
  • There is no alerting; but I guess if you're only profiling data, there is not much point
  • There were no findings or positive savings
Talend ETL provides a more integrated Data Quality tool but the choice for IDQ was completed before I started and company is entrenched with Informatica
I managed to get it blocked this year
The tool would be fine if you are looking to base your data quality on profiling data weekly
