To ensure data quality, you can implement validation rules for product data at various levels (such as attribute, item, or category) in IBM® InfoSphere® Master Data Management Server for Product Information Management (MDM Server for PIM). However, rules incur processing overhead during large imports or during the data reconciliation process. InfoSphere QualityStage™, on the other hand, is a component of IBM InfoSphere Information Server that can profile and standardize data, eliminate duplicates from data sources, and ensure survival of the best-of-breed records from a duplicate set. This article looks at a real-time integration between MDM Server for PIM and QualityStage to ensure quality of product data through standardization processes implemented in QualityStage.
