H2 2020 Team Successes

In the second half of 2020, the BaseCap team focused on supporting our customers in both implementing our Data Quality Management Platform and improving their data architecture, immediately reducing operational costs and enabling sustainable growth. We are happy to celebrate with our team the following major successes of H2 2020:

Platform

On time delivery of new platform features including:

  • Spotlight Root Cause Identify and analyze which data fields/columns are causing rule failures across multiple rules.  This is displayed on the dashboard with a new visualization that will highlight the columns that are causing the most impact to your data quality score.

  • Centrally manage rule mappings – Drill into each rule standard and see all the data sources where a particular rule is mapped and manage those mappings as needed.  You can also view how many failures there have been for that particular rule standard across each data source.

  • Rule failure details context – View the rule standard and it’s mapping for that particular data source to gain contextual information about the rule failure.

  • Excel export update – The excel download file now identifies the rule failure(s) for each row, which is helpful when you download all rule failures for a given data source to quickly identify rows that are causing multiple failures.

  • History table details – The data quality history view now displays additional information about historical runs, meaning you can see the data quality score, rows measured and total failures without having to click into each historical report.

  • General Platform – We’ve made some general visual upgrades and changes throughout the site.
