Data Quality Services
Jeff Prom, Magenic
As the old adage goes, ‘Garbage in, garbage out.’ Stop spending hours manually cleansing your data, and start using Data Quality Services! DQS is the new data quality tool provided with SQL Server 2012. In this session we will cover topics such as creating a knowledge base, data cleansing, data matching, and using 3rd party knowledge bases (Reference Data). We will talk about installation, show how to use the DQS tool, the Excel Add-in, and how to integrate DQS into your SSIS packages.
Jeff Prom is a Senior Consultant with Magenic Technologies in Minneapolis. He holds a bachelor’s degree, three SQL Server certifications, and is an active PASS member. Jeff has been working in the IT industry for over 14 years and currently specializes in data and business intelligence.
