What is DIW? 

Within MDO, the data intelligence workbench provides a health check for the organization’s master data. It checks the data for duplicity, completeness, accuracy, and validness. It is an Intelligence Workbench where you can improve data standards and quality by defining and running business rules on existing or new data sets.   

Why DIW?  

DIW monitors your data health and flags any anomalies to the Data Owners and Stewards as the Business Rules evolve and change. It provides a platform for collaborative data governance, data correction, and enrichment.

How does DIW work?  

Admin can set up data quality checks from a pre-defined set of rules or create their own rules and stay on top of its important data.

What are business rules? 

Business Rules are standard checks or constraints that are used to validate data within different fields based on defined rules. These rules can be configured or accessed from the existing rules in the MDOs Business Rules library.
