InfoSphere QualityStage

InfoSphere® QualityStage® provides capabilities to create and maintain an accurate view of data entities such as customer, location, vendors, and products throughout your enterprise.

InfoSphere QualityStage uses predefined, customizable rules to prepare complex information about your business entities for transactional, operational, and analytic applications in batch, real time, or as a web service. Information is extracted from the source system, measured, cleansed, enriched, consolidated, and loaded into the target system.

By completing analysis at the character or word level, InfoSphere QualityStage helps uncover data anomalies and inconsistencies before transformational processing occurs. Data from disparate sources is automatically standardized into fixed fields, such as given name, date of birth, gender, and phone number. Data quality rules then assign the correct semantic meaning to the input data to facilitate matching.

By ensuring data quality, InfoSphere QualityStage reduces the time and cost to implement master data management (MDM), business intelligence, enterprise resource planning (ERP), and other strategic customer-related IT initiatives.
