What is data standardization?

Data standardization is the process of transforming data into a standardized format. It is achieved by performing data cleaning and standardization activities that yield a consistent and usable view across data coming from multiple disparate sources.

Enterprises on average use 50+ applications that have different rules and formats for data entry and storage. In addition to that, human errors and mistakes cause inconsistent punctuation and capitalization, invalid data entries, obscure or multiple variations of acronyms, etc. Organizations need to identify and resolve such inconsistencies by implementing data standardization techniques to ensure reliable data quality.

Process

How does data standardization work?

Combine and profile data

Bring data together at one place and build quick data summary report to highlight missing, incomplete, or invalid values present and identify potential data cleansing opportunities.

Parse and merge columns

Run data fields against a dictionary of words to identify sub-data elements (such as Street Name and Street Number for Address), and merge columns to follow custom-created formats.

Pattern recognition and validation

Recognize hidden patterns in your data columns, run validation checks, and transform invalid information so that all values follow the standardized and acceptable pattern.

Remove and replace characters

Remove and replace leading and trailing spaces, specific letters or numbers, non-printable characters, and more.

Transform letter cases

Transform cases of letters in strings to ensure a consistent and standardized view across all data records.

Use Wordsmith tool

Fetch the most repetitive words occurring in a data field, and decide to flag, replace, or delete certain words to achieve standardization, or prepare data for matching and deduplication.
