Data standardization software
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.
How does data standardization work?
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.
Transform letter cases
Transform cases of letters in strings to ensure a consistent and standardized view across all data records.
