Increase confidence in data and insights
As companies become more data-driven, the cost of errors due to bad data increases. Corrupted data leads to poor quality reports and disastrous AI decisions, eroding business stakeholders’ confidence in data and the accuracy of insights. Adding data quality monitoring and management to the production data lake helps detect, prevent, and auto-correct data defects and ultimately leads to data quality assurance. Data quality assurance means reaching more relevant insights, better decision making, boosted business values, and increased trust from stakeholders.
Detect data corruption and prevent it from spreading
Automatic business rules validation is the most reliable way of achieving good data quality. The best data quality tools will integrate with any data engineering technology stack by injecting business rules enforcement jobs between critical data processing and transformation jobs. A convenient graphical interface will decrease implementation costs by reducing the amount of coding the team has to do and empowering your data analysts.
Rely on AI to find unusual patterns
It’s not always possible to define business rules to enforce data quality at every step of the data processing pipeline. AI-powered anomaly detection automates data quality and helps scale it to thousands of data pipelines with minimal effort. From basic statistical process control to deep learning algorithms, AI learns the relevant data profiles in real-time, uncovering hidden defects or unusual patterns. A rich user interface helps tune and monitor data quality metrics and profiles, allowing data scientists to achieve a deeper understanding of the data.
Ensure consistency with systems or record
Poor data quality is often caused by issues with data ingestion. Common issues include missing, corrupted, or stale data. Stream ingestion and processing can increase the chances of sourcing inconsistent data due to missed events. Adding consistency and completeness checks between raw datasets and systems of record improves data quality early in the pipeline, preventing corruption from entering into the system.
Autocorrect data defects
In some cases, it’s possible to achieve automatic correction of data issues. Similar to the business rules that detect data corruption, injecting auto-correcting rules helps self-heal and avoids downtime.
Get to market faster with our data quality accelerator
There’s a variety of data quality checks that can be implemented as business rules. With our solution, data analysts and engineers can create rules to ensure that certain data columns don’t exceed pre-defined ratios of nulls, validate that data falls into certain ranges, or check that a data set complies with a certain profile. The tool assists with data profiling, measuring data quality metrics, cleansing and auto-correcting data, and alerting the support team when something goes wrong.
If your data analytics platform already has thousands of data processing jobs or the business rules being used aren’t detecting complex data defects, anomaly detection can help build a more comprehensive data quality solution. Data scientists can configure automatic data profiling to collect key data metrics, use statistical process control techniques, and configure deep learning anomaly detection to uncover suspicious patterns and alert the support team if predefined levels of confidence are reached.
Good data quality starts with ensuring that the raw data imported into the data analytics platform is done correctly and completely, is consistent, and not stale. With our solution, we can configure various types of checks that integrate with data sources in data lakes or SQL-based databases. Measuring and improving data completeness is critical for streaming use cases such as clickstream processing, order processing, payment processing, or Internet of Things applications, when events can be dropped or processed more than once.
