DATA QUALITY SERVICES

When moving to a new platform, assessing legacy system data suitability and migration readiness is critical. Valiance’s Data Quality Services leverage AI and ML to examine how source system data quality fits target system constraints, highlighting data quality issues that could jeopardize your migration —before even one record is migrated.

Source Profiling and Data Quality Assessment

Data profiling shows the as-is state of data quality in the source system, a major step towards the creation of a more structured, consistent and reliable set of data in the target environment. It provides the basis for assessing which data to focus on for improvement, setting the stage for the data enhancement.

Document Attribute Search and Analysis

Data Quality Services give more confidence to the data enhancement activities that support the planning and execution of migrations. Data Quality Services enhancement uses a systematic approach includes AI/ML capabilities:

  • An automated transformation engine for structured data.
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML) for unstructured data.

New AI/ML features of Data Quality Services address the common challenge of limited awareness of document content which makes it difficult to locate relevant information in documents.

The new data quality features address metadata consolidation with greater degrees of speed, efficiency and precision than the manual approach.

FOR LIFE SCIENCES

Data quality issues can trigger misleading report and regulatory filings resulting in countless hours spent investigating and resolving these issues. Valiance’s Data Quality Services avoid this wasted effort.
