AUTONOMOUS BIG DATA QUALITY VALIDATION TOOL WINS GARTNER COOL VENDOR AWARD
CHICAGO – June 8, 2017 – Machine Learning has enabled the ability to autonomously validate Big Data Quality and Data Matching. FirstEigen’s DataBuck, the leading tool in this space, has now been recognized in Gartner Inc.’s short list of three “Cool Vendors in Information Innovation and Governance, 2017”.
The tremendous growth of data volumes and proliferation of data sources have enormously complicated the task of validating the elements of Big Data Quality (completeness, timeliness, uniqueness, reasonableness, consistency, validity, data drift, and data matching) as data moves between different systems or accumulates in Data Lakes. Gartner reports  that, untrustworthy, low quality data not only reduces an organization’s ROI on its information investments, but also exposes them to increased business and regulatory risks.
FirstEigen’s tool, DataBuck, leverages AI and Machine Learning to make Data Quality validation self-learning and autonomous. It creates and constantly updates 1000’s of data validation checks without manual intervention. It is built on Spark platform with specialized algorithms and is 10x faster than any other tool or home-grown approach. Errors can be autonomously filtered in just three Clicks.
Data quality issues are always expected. They are usually mitigated by hiring an army of programmers to trap them. Unexpected data quality issues on the other hand, are not spotted as the programmers are not anticipating them. They pose a more serious business risk. Current tools are only capable of checking for the former with extensive coding, but not the high risk latter. DataBuck uses Machine Learning to comprehensively identify risks from all types of Data Quality threats.
