Data Profiling: this feature analyzes data and reports accuracy, consistency, and redundancy. Data profiling helps plan needed tasks to shape up enterprise data.

Data Cleansing and Normalization: The transformation of dirty data into clean information. De-duping, correct syntax, inconsistent data patterns, incorrect case, and other issues are fixed.

Workflow: An engine to automate processes. Alerts and notifications are sent to data or product managers. Workflow helps include all steps and humans inherent to a data quality process.

Business Rules: Ensure corporate standards are embedded in in data entry and data goverance processes.

Audit Logs: Important information about data quality processes and what actions were taken by whom and when.

Reports: Information and analyses to spawn action and repair.

Flexibility: Supports strict and fuzzy data cleansing and can set severity levels or flags during data entry.
