The Basis for Your Analyses: Data Preparation
Studies and user surveys show time and again that data quality and master data management are crucial for any data initiative. For sound data management that prioritizes good data quality and master data management, comprehensive data preparation (”data prep”) is essential.
Data Prep approach
Data Prep includes the steps of data integration and cleansing. To enable later data analysis, data must be cleaned, tidied, and sorted. Duplicates would need to be removed and erroneous data deleted. Data Prep also includes profiling data, data integration, data management and preparing data for analytics.
