DataCleaner 5.1 – The Premier Data Quality Solution
http://datacleaner.org/

Features include: 1) Data Quality Analysis & Profiling – The heart of DataCleaner is a strong data profiling engine for discovering and analyzing the quality of your data. Find the patterns, missing values, character sets and other characteristics of your data values. Profiling is an essential activity of any Data Quality, Master Data Management or Data Governance program. If you don’t know what you’re up against, you have poor chances of fixing it; 2) Duplicate Detection – Avoid operational issues and bad customer experiences by identifying if you have the same persons, companies and products registered multiple times in your databases. They introduce the latest generation Duplicate detection feature, building on Machine Learning principles for ease of configuration and improved inferential matching; 3) Data Standardization & Cleansing – DataCleaner is built to handle data both big and small. Give everything from CSV files, Excel spreadsheets to Relational Databases (RDBMs) and NoSQL databases a spin! Use reference data, external and internal, in order to verify that the data values you have correspond to the real world. DataCleaner allows you to build your own cleansing rules and compose them into several use scenarios or target databases. Whether it is simple search/replace rules, regular expressions, pattern matching or completely custom transformations, they support it; 4) Data Health Monitoring -To manage your data’s quality, you need to monitor it. Monitoring is a central aspect with DataCleaner – to establish the starting point and goals, and to ensure a process of following up on data quality issues. The monitoring server of DataCleaner enables you to not just make point-in-time profiles of your data, but to schedule periodic data quality checks and receive notifications if quality KPIs get out of control; and 5) A Data Quality Eco-System – Pluggability and Connectivity are keywords for the design philosophy of DataCleaner. The application delivers not only out-of-the-box functionality, but also hosts an eco-system of community driven application extensions, integrations, shared content and more. Head over to the Discussion Forum to interact with fellow users and developers of DataCleaner. Or check out the ExtensionSwap where you can find plug-in functionality that immediately adds to the value of DataCleaner. This will be added to Information Quality Resources Subject Tracer™.
