Automated and comprehensive
Experian Pandora automatically profiles all data and highlights statistically unusual values (outliers). It also discovers and provides record-level drilldown to inconsistencies, broken/valid keys and inter-table relationships. Its broad, interactive analytical capabilities assist users in identifying the root causes of issues and thus taking the first real steps towards corrective process improvement.
Fast and efficient
The software achieves far more than just data profiling. It enables your organisation to understand, transform and manage your data quality in a fast and effective way - making manual data profiling a thing of the past.
Experian Pandora performs three main functions; data analysis, data prototyping and data management.
Data analysis provides data transparency at an enterprise level. It allows data architects and subject matter experts to investigate and assess data content, structure, relationships and quality. Experian Pandora provides unlimited speed of thought browsing and interrogation of data and metadata. The single, consolidated repository of knowledge about data will underpin all subsequent data-dependent projects.
Data prototyping allows Data Architects and Analysts to generate complete, optimised, unambiguous and fully validated mapping specification documents for end-to-end data integration processes, along with full sets of associated test data.
Data management enables organisations to identify and investigate relevant data, assess and improve its quality, and control this process over time, independent of whether the information concerns customers, products, finance, sales or other business areas. Business rules are associated with monetary measures to provide business relevant financial KPIs, and their results are stored to provide time-based directional KPIs.
