What is data integration?

Data integration refers to the process of combining data that comes from different sources. Typically, the user needs to have a unified view of all the data that is available for a set of customers, company names or products. That’s where business intelligence comes into play to make the most of the enormous amount of data available. Techniques like fuzzy cleaning and matching are used to standardize the data and establish the appropriate links between customers, company names or products.

Which data integration services are provided?

Data integration services basically include three areas, data cleansing, data matching and data merging. These areas can be seen as the three basic steps to data integration. To be integrated, your datasets need to be cleaned of duplicates, noisy characters and fields that are not relevant. Then fuzzy matching comes into play. Because the same customers or products are written in different ways in each dataset, due to typos, abbreviations and so on, fuzzy matching is used to recognize how similar (or not) some of your entries are. This phase is, of course, crucial to obtain a final dataset of great quality. Finally, in the merging phase, the data is integrated based on several predetermined factors, e.g. name, email or physical address.
