Q-Thor Datenqualität

Tool for business users

Tool for business users

Q-THOR helps you sustainably improve and guarantee your data quality. Business users (e.g. data owners and data stewards) can even perform self-service checks on the quality of ‘their’ data at the point of creation and delivery. There are standard processes and functions available for this, such as data quality checks and KPI monitoring in dashboards. They themselves then decide whether the level of data quality is high enough to distribute the data throughout the company.

Data-driven quality management

Data-driven quality management

Data quality is a key indicator in these times of growing data volumes because more and more business models and important corporate decisions are based on data. The quality of this data therefore has a direct effect on corporate success. Through the data-driven approach, companies quickly distribute the data that is generated and delivered throughout the entire data warehouse through processing procedures. If this data is distributed without first being checked and it is inaccurate, it is almost impossible to rectify it at a later date. This is how Q-THOR helps its users, for example in the following areas.

Q-THOR is already helping users solve these problems:

External data deliveries

With Q-THOR, your data deliveries are even safer! Through plausibility checks on external data deliveries (e.g. from group companies) at the point of delivery, you ensure that only data that has been successfully verified is distributed throughout the data warehouse and integrated into processing procedures.

Fast Close

With Q-THOR, you can fast close even faster! During fast closing, inaccurate data leads to costly analyses and a lot of rectification work. By validating the data when gathering and compiling it, problems with data quality are identified immediately, not just at the end of the processing chain (e.g. in reports).

Regulatory requirements

With Q-THOR, complying with regu­la­tory requirements is even easier! Regu­lations such as Basel, Solvency and BCBS 239 contain require­ments concer­ning the structure, orga­nisation and processes of data and data quality mana­ge­ment. Q-THOR offers support with comp­liance while also providing all infor­mation for your data dic­tio­nary and your data gover­nance frame­work.

Master data management

With Q-THOR, you have an even better grip on your master data! As it is so user-friendly, the software enables data owners to take care of the high quality of ‘their’ data themselves. They indepen­dently set up quality checks and are imme­diately notified of errors or inconsistencies when entering/updating data.

Migration support

With Q-THOR, migrating your data is even easier! One major challenge in migration projects is the inadequate quality of the data being migrated. By monitoring data quality at all times during migration and generating data cleansing orders, you have a grip on data quality during migration too.

Q-THOR explained in 4 easy steps

So that business users can verify their data without any programming skills, Q-THOR is easy to use and equipped with a number of self-service functions. For example, dashboards, checks and analyses can be carried out by the specialist divisions themselves which means that IT does not have to set update plausibility checks during the course of operations.

Step 1: Self-service data plausibility checks

Q-THOR’s modern, user-friendly web interface enables you to update your individual quality checks. As a user, you can therefore verify the plausibility of your data through self-service at one centralised point within your company — and all without any assistance from your IT department.

Step 2: Flexible scheduling of quality checks

With Q-THOR, you schedule the performance of quality checks independently. The scheduling options ‘real-time’, ‘event-driven’ and ‘time-based’ offer you the highest level of flexibility when doing so.

Step 3: Reporting and error analysis

With Q-THOR, you can analyse any errors that occur using comprehensive table functions and drill-down methods until you identify the cause. An auditable comments function enables you to comment on errors during the analysis process.

Step 4: Monitoring data quality in real time

The Q-THOR dashboard provides all relevant information concerning data quality in your company at a glance. The quality checks you have scheduled and performed are automatically updated and Q-THOR guarantees the necessary transparency of your data in real time.
