Organisations have recognised the need for profiling their data to assess their data quality by finding information on column completeness, data keys and pattern analysis etc. Traditionally SQL has been used to do this, so the need for investing in data quality tools has been questioned.
However, this approach relies on knowing what columns of data might have problems, and it does not have the ability to measure and improve data quality on a much wider, enterprise scale by discovering data quality rules.
As the main purpose of profiling is to discover data quality rules, data quality tools have become vital. Data quality tools allow you to discover rules across hundreds of tables and many systems. Rules can be created around data relationship discovery, data validation, quality monitoring, data entry validation and data lineage etc.
This means organisations are commonly deploying specialist data quality tools and there is a huge demand for employees with skills to use these tools.
DQM Training offers software training in several data quality tools supported by the software provider which will help users get certified as specialist users.
Users will get access to everything they need to gain the skills they need from presentations, videos, questions and hot spot screenshot training which allows users to get a feel of how to use the tools without the need of installing the tool themselves.
