Course Overview

This course teaches how to build Quality Stage parallel jobs that investigate, standardize, match, and consolidate data records. Students will gain experience by building an application that combines customer data from different source systems into a single master customer record. This course also covers the Quality Stage data cleansing process in which students will transform an unstructured data source into a format suitable for loading into an existing data target. They will also write jobs to cleanse the source data by building custom rule sets to standardize data.
