The use of data profiling tools can lead to higher-quality, more reliable data or eliminating errors that add costs to data-driven projects. Eliminating these costly errors involve processes such as:
• Collecting descriptive statistics.
• Collecting data types, length and recurring patterns.
• Tagging data with keywords, descriptions or categories.
• Performing data quality assessment.
• Discovering metadata and assessing its accuracy.
The most efficient way of handling the data profiling process is to automate it with a data management solution. We prepared a list of open-source data profiling tools that help you carry out the analysis of your data and identify the issues.
