Data Quality

Data is not trustable by default. Do you trust yours?
Data is the resource that fuels our digital economy, but most enterprises find it difficult to get value out of their data because they do not know what they have, where it is, or what it means.

An Overview of Data Quality

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’ Data Quality

Global IDs provide a basic data quality service in their 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.

Global IDs Data Quality Capability Goes further than Profiling

The Global IDs Data Quality capability goes further than profiling and allows 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.

Global IDs Data Quality Capability can also Manage Stakeholder Involvement

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.
