Data is not trustable by default. Do you trust yours?
Everyone who uses data for any purpose is relying on the data to be free from defects and represent what it is supposed to represent. Loss of trust in data can happen suddenly and take a long time to regain. Global IDs Data Quality capability provides the means to take control of data quality and detect any issues before the data is used in business processes.
Global IDs provides a basic data quality service in its profiling capabilities. Data values that are outliers can be identified and reported to administrators who can then decide if they are true errors or not. For instance, a column with Zip Codes may have some values that are only 4 digits, whereas the great majority are 5 digits. Similarly, a US State Code column in a Customer table might have some values not found in the parent reference data table, perhaps codes for Canadian provinces. In this way the profiling capability of Global IDs can be used at any time to discover potential data quality issues.
The Global IDs Data Quality capability goes further than profiling and allow enterprises to place data quality controls on their data assets. These controls are rules that get defined by business users and implemented in Global IDs. Additionally, the controls can be automatically generated by Global IDs for critical data elements. The controls function like rules that continuously monitor the data elements they are linked to. If the control detects a data value that it considers to be an exception, this is flagged and notifications are generated.
Because Global IDs is an integrated platform with many other components the Data Quality capability can link metrics about the health of data to other content in the Data Catalog, Business Glossary, and so on. This provides meaningful information that is presented in reports and dashboards. The Global IDs Data Quality capability can also manage stakeholder involvement via RACI matrices that are further linked to these reports and dashboards. The result is that the enterprise’s data ecosystem can be placed under the control needed from a data quality perspective to provide the level of trust in the data that business users expect.

How It Works
Do you trust your Data?
Data is the lifeblood of today’s enterprises. Like the blood that flows through the body, it can become contaminated, lost, or bleed to places it should not. Corrupt data flows downstream from its points of origin, silently creating problems and wreaking havoc. Do you trust the quality of your data?
Data Quality: The Foundation for Analytics and Compliance
Data science, machine learning, and analytics all require data of high quality or they won’t work. Compliance likewise requires enforcement of high data quality standards. The Global IDs Data Quality prepares your data for the future, as well as the demands of the present.
