Course Description

While automated data cleansing is essential, there are data quality situations that need human intervention. In these situations, enabling business users through data preparation and data stewardship allows users to deal with such data quality issues. Learners will experience self-service profiling and data quality through data preparation, and play a role in record remediation efforts (from arbitration to resolution campaigns) in data stewardship.

This course helps individuals recognize and identify data quality problems. It enables individuals to prepare data for their own data analysis, and to be data stewards to ensure enterprise data maintains the highest level of quality and trust.
