Data Quality Center (DQC) provides a consistent, comprehensive tool that will allow you to address the full range of data quality issues—from data cleansing to matching—and prevent incorrect or incomplete data from gaining future entrance into your systems.

DQC is designed with a unique combination of ease of use, flexibility, and power. The application is bundled with predefined rules and dictionaries that enable you to quickly initiate your DQ processes. A powerful business rules engine and rich expression language allow for system customization according to your exact business needs. An advanced architecture also provides the performance and scalability to tackle large and increasing data volumes.

DQC can integrate into your existing IT infrastructure quickly and easily, providing a central interface that consistently applies data quality rules across all your systems, applications, data sources, and other points of entry. In addition, as part of the Ataccama family of products, DQC composes the centerpiece of a complete master data management or data governance solution.
