2M413G - IBM InfoSphere Advanced QualityStage v11.5

This course will step you through the QualityStage data cleansing process. You will transform an unstructured data source into a format suitable for loading into an existing data target. You will cleanse the source data by building a customer rule set that you create and use that rule set to standardize the data. You will next build a reference match to relate the cleansed source data to the existing target data.
