Data Cleansing | The Key to Data Optimization


What is data cleansing?

The process of identifying, correcting, and removing erroneous, inaccurate, incomplete, or duplicate data in a database or information system is called data cleansing. The goal is to improve data quality to ensure reliable and accurate information for decision-making and business processes.

Data Cleansing with D&TS

Poor material and product master data can have a significant impact on business processes and costs. At D&TS, we offer our Data Cleansing Service, which cleans your data as thoroughly as if it were run through a car wash. We validate, correct and optimize your data to ensure it is accurate, complete, up-to-date, clear and consistent. This squeaky-clean, high-quality data forms the basis for more efficient internal and external business processes, improved system control and cost reduction.

We analyze designations, assign uniform “standard names” for each material and harmonize units as well as dimensions. We will gladly support you in creating automatically generated descriptions and material short texts. Our terminology database facilitates multilingual translations of the texts.

Data classification (foam wash)

Data classification (foam wash)

We classify your materials to a self-classification or according to standard classifications such as ECLASS, ETIM and UNSPSC. In data cleansing, there is no imperative need to classify data. However, we would like to emphasize that classification can significantly improve data quality and have a positive impact on subsequent processes.
