Data Profiling

Why Wait to Start Your Data Profiling Project ?

In today's fast-moving marketplace, the race is often won by the businesses that are best able to master and capitalize on the use of data. Data profiling – the process of gauging the character and condition of data stored in varied forms across the enterprise – is commonly recognized as a vital first step toward gaining control over organizational data. For many businesses, however, data profiling projects remain stuck in neutral, stymied either by the time demands of building data profiling tools in house, or the steep costs of purchasing a proprietary solution.

Talend, the leading provider of open source data management solutions, gets your data profiling project in gear with Talend Open Studio for Data Quality, a powerful and flexible data profiler that's ready to download and use today.
