Q:

What kind of tools can you recommend to perform data auditing and quality analysis?

A:

Sid Adelman?s Answer: This depends on what you are trying to do. There are some lower cost tools that will give you a report card of certain aspects of the quality of your data such as non-conformance to domains, missing values, out-of-range and so on. Gladstone is one such tool, www.happyrock.com. However, most of these tools will not tell you if the data is inaccurate and will not perform any fuzzy logic on the data; that?s the province of the more expensive tools such as Trillium, www.trillium.com and Vality www.vality.com (now owned by Ascential).

Clay Rehm’s Answer: I am sure there are many good tools out there, but two that come to mind that I have experience in are SAS and Microsoft Access.
