    Data security is one of the major responsibilities now-a-days as this is where your company’s whole marketing depends. Some questions that David raised in this article is good and if any data cleansing tools or data quality tools can serve clients like us to the core then it would be a great thing to have in our array of marketing arena. Although I am very happy and don’t face any such problems with my existing data management software but still David did a wonderful job in raising such questions

    Data profiling software has always been the top choice for data quality analysts. The data quality assessment and the discovery of meta- data is itself one of among the top choice. The software provides additional details about columns and tables. The software also tracks down the frequency along with distribution and characteristics values of a data set. They also provide a graphical result for the users for analyzing the facts. I am sure that If you use a new product you will get rid of every problem and it will take care of every problem as of taken by data profiling software.
