Overall Satisfaction

We found many data inconsistencies, foreign character problems and issues with simple formats and formulas. Special characters were also one of the many bugs we failed to address in the beginning. Now that we start all the projects with IDQ and only after its help in analysis and fixing the bad data, it helped us with quite a few production tickets. It also helped us with best end user experience.
  • Watch the data real time- After creating the job the data quality engine checks and run the custom rules creating a navigation window at the bottom for review and accessing the data right away.
  • Character Set Mapping
  • Makes sense of our own data, which in turn gives us confidence that we can provide to the end users. IDQ helped us with erroneous data in accounting and HR for accurate and immaculate reports
  • I think its high time Informatica integrated all tools like PowerCenter, IDQ, IDE , powerexhange into one which will simplify development and maintenance
  • User Acceptance testing time can reduced.
  • employee efficiency is increased exponentially due to more automated, customized tool
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.
Integration with ETL tool like PowerCenter which is best and most popular in market.
Easy to Install and learn tool.
I did not spend any time researching the tool for improvements, but the interface with PowerCenter will make me more interactive and connected to the developers.
