Data Preparation

Page One

Determining Best Practices for Self-Service and Governance
Using data effectively requires first that it be prepared for use. This typically involves a sequence of steps: accessing the data, perhaps through search; aggregating it; and enriching, transforming and cleaning data from different sources to cre­ate a single, uniform data set. To do the job of data preparation properly, organizations need flex­ible tools that enable them to enrich the context of data drawn from multiple sources, collaborate on its preparation and govern the process of preparation to ensure consistency and security. Users of these tools range from analysts to operations professionals in the lines of business to IT professionals. This research is designed to examine existing and planned approaches to data preparation as well as related technologies, best practices for implementing them and market trends in this area.
