Collect & Clean Data

The foundation of a strong data analytics initiative is strong data. Bad data leads to bad decisions.

Association Analytics® transforms your data into high-quality, trusted information through Data Architecture, Data Quality Management, and Data Governance.

Clean Data
What if data cleansing didn’t take as long? What could your staff accomplish if they weren’t spending as much time managing data quality? We make Data Quality Management fast and easy. We also help you reduce future data discrepancies by developing Data Governance policies. Here’s how we do it:

  1. Define acceptable standards for data cleanliness
  2. Correct duplicate, missing and inconsistent data
  3. Standardize procedures to reduce future data discrepancies

Why You Need a Data Warehouse

Association Analytics® implements data warehouses and data marts using a dimensional data model.

Applications, such as AMS, event management systems, and financial management systems, are transactional systems. A transactional data model is optimized for data input– it’s what you need to capture daily transactions. The reports you get from these systems are reports about what happened. They don’t generally help you determine why it happened or what is likely to happen in the future. An analytical data model is optimized for data retrieval – which is what you need in order to understand the meaning of the data so you can make decisions that affect the future.
