Data Profiling Early and Often

OCDQ Radio is a vendor-neutral podcast about data quality and its related disciplines, produced and hosted by Jim Harris.

On this episode of OCDQ Radio, I discuss data profiling with James Standen, the founder and CEO of nModal Solutions Inc., the makers of Datamartist, which is a fast, easy to use, visual data profiling and transformation tool.

Before founding nModal, James had over 15 years experience in a broad range of roles involving data, ranging from building business intelligence solutions, creating data warehouses and a data warehouse competency center, through to working on data migration and ERP projects in large organizations.  You can learn more about and connect with James Standen on LinkedIn.

James thinks that while there is obviously good data and bad data, that often bad data is just misunderstood and can be coaxed away from the dark side if you know how to approach it.  He does recommend wearing the proper safety equipment however, and having the right tools.  For more of his wit and wisdom, follow Datamartist on Twitter, and read the Datamartist Blog.
