Poor data quality is expensive - research shows that bad data is on average costing companies 30% or more of their revenue*. It can lead to drawing wrong conclusions from data, making bad business decisions and wasting precious time of experts involved in data analytics. Thankfully, all of this can be avoided with the help of data quality tools.
Data quality tools are helping to indentify, udnerstand and correct flaws in data to support effective business processes and decision making. One of such tools is Dataedo.
Dataedo allows you to ensure data quality on multiple levels:
Avoid making bad conslusions from data that could lead to poor decisions costing your company millions of dollars. Provide context aroud data with data documentation, data lineage diagrams and community feedback through a lightweight data catalog. Give all employees who analyse data access to this catalog so they can better understand the data they are working with and reduce the risk of making errors.
Allow data users to post their feedback on data through a web data catalog. Add warnings to data assets of questionable quality so that other members of the data community know what to look out for. Create to-dos to make sure that necessary improvements actually happen.
Increase trust in your data through community feedback. Dataedo Data Community allows users to comment on data and add ratings based on their experience with particular data assets. Don’t waste time on validating the same data multiple times - easily see if others already did that.
Data quality is an important part of data governance. Dataedo helps data stewards to ensure high data quality through tools such as data lineage, data profiling, and business glossary. With Dataedo data stewards can easily check where the data is coming from, peak into the values itself and build a repository of rules and policies linked directly to the data dictionary.
Use sample data to learn what data is stored in your data assets. Understand the data better and make sure that the data is good quality.
Visualize how data moves through the system and share interactive diagrams with your team.
Understand, document and visualize relationships between tables (foreign keys), regardless of the actual schema implementation and constraints.
Explain meaning and purpose of each data element in your database with titles, descriptions, and custom fields.
Build and share a universal glossary of business terms, policies and rules.

"It helps us document the 'why' we built it the way we did. The tool is very intuitive to work with, and we use it continuously."
"Dataedo is an easy to use facility for managing basic metadata centrally and producing enhanced data dictionaries."
"Dataedo helps developers to find descriptions for data very quickly. Seeing documentation progress with every release is really helpful."
