Oracle Data Quality Review

A good pick for a data quality management solution. I hope they add more instructions and examples to their online help.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of this product for me:

  1. Address verification
  2. Integrated data profiling, auditing, and cleansing.

How has it helped my organization?

We were able to automate our data profiling tasks that enabled us to identify and establish data quality rules and standards more efficiently. Since the rules are set up and integrated within the tool, it also facilitated an improvement in our data quality audit/validation and cleansing efforts. The address verification capability is also handy i.e. in making sure that our Customer and Supplier master data is accurate.

What needs improvement?

I hope they can add some more detailed instructions and examples to their Online Help documentation.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this product for around 3 years now.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We used the Oracle Enterprise Data Quality (EDQ) Quick Start Windows Installer and did not encounter any issue, except in establishing the connectivity with Oracle Data Integrator due to versions compatibility constraints. We found the fix from My Oracle Support.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have experienced some system crashes i.e. when tying to run Data Profiling Processes for very large data sets. We had to restart the EDQ Application Server to resolve the problem.

How are customer service and technical support?

We encountered some troubles during our initial set up / installation and we had to re-do it all over again. We asked for assistance from the Vendor and the customer service we received is satisfactory.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are doing the data quality processes manually prior to EDQ deployment.

How was the initial setup?

The Oracle Enterprise Data Quality (EDQ) Quick Start Windows Installer that we used for the initial setup is fairly uncomplicated. The complicated part is setting up the Global Knowledge Repository setup (Loqate) as the installation instructions are not very straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented through an in-house team.

What other advice do I have?

Oracle EDQ is indeed a state-of-the-art tool that will help you understand, improve, protect, and govern the quality of your enterprise data in a single integrated and collaborative environment. It is powerful yet easy to use. A good pick for a data quality management solution.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

Version 11
