Our data services start with data hygiene. You never want to wast your hard-earned marketing dollars sending mail or email to old, incorrect addresses. According to Wikipedia, incorrect or inconsistent data can also lead to false conclusions and misdirected investments. Believe me, you don’t want to have bad data.
List Hygiene & Maintenance
This is the process of detecting and correcting (or removing) corrupt or inaccurate records. After those records have been identified, that data is replaced modified, or deleted.
Once the list hygiene data services have been completed, a data set should be consistent with other similar data sets in the system. Data Services may either flag (highlight) or remove inconsistencies. These inconsistencies may have been originally been caused by user entry errors or by corruption in transmission or storage. Furthermore, different data dictionary definitions may be the cause of inconsistent (dirty) data.
The actual process of data cleansing may involve removing typographical errors or validating and correcting values. The validation may be strict such as rejecting any address that does not have a valid postal code. Other validations maybe loose. In this case records may be corrected that partially match existing, known records. Some data cleansing solutions will clean data by cross checking with a validated data set.
Another common data service practice is data enhancement. This is where data is made more complete by adding related information. For example, appending addresses with any phone numbers related to that address. We can also append email addresses to your file.
Some clients also ask us to add new information to a record. For example, someone may want to have a spouse name appended to a file. Likewise, others may want to know if there are children present in the household.
Data services may also involve harmonization (or normalization) of data. This is the process of bringing together data of varying file formats. The data is then re-formatted into one cohesive data set.
