Your data is only valuable if its quality is high. The best way to achieve high data quality is through data profiling. Yet, what is the most effective (as well as cost-effective) way to carry out data profiling?

The good news is that there are data management solutions that enable fast, accurate, and cost-effective data profiling. Read on to learn more about Precisely Trillium products and their data profiling capabilities. 

What is data profiling? 

Data profiling is a set of processes that collects statistics about a data set’s quality and hygiene. It involves examining, analyzing, and reviewing information. There are three kinds of data profiling: 

  1. Structure discovery: involves data formatting to ensure information is uniform and consistent
  2. Content discovery: assesses the data quality of individual pieces of information 
  3. Relationship discovery: detects connections, similarities, differences, and associations between data sources

How does data profiling affect data quality?

Data profiling has a positive impact on data quality; it helps improve the confidence you have in your data. How does it do that? 

Data profiling asks whether there is any incorrect or incomplete information in your data sets. It also looks at whether all data has been formatted properly, and if there’s missing context or duplicated information.
