Cleanse inaccurate and inconsistent data, and identify and resolve duplicate records
East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has selected Talend Data Quality, an open source data management offering, to integrate and manage over 100 applications within its IT infrastructure.
Talend’s open source tool is expected to enable the Service to reduce the time taken to compile reports, whilst ensuring the consistency and accuracy of information contained within them.
The open source offering will be implemented to cleanse inaccurate and inconsistent data, identify and resolve duplicate records and augment and enhance data for the Service, which operates from 24 fire stations handling a wide variety of calls.
East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service project manager Steve Sims said East Sussex Fire and Rescue has to handle huge volumes of events each day and this information needs to be logged for reporting purposes and for business intelligence.
"With over 100 applications, it was no longer efficient to integrate and manage our data manually as this was a time-consuming process, on occasions prone to error," Sims said.
"We selected Talend Data Quality as it has the capability to aggregate and reconcile all the data we need to pull together in-depth reports."
"It is of paramount importance to us to ensure that we have one consistently dependable source of integrated data, to ensure that all reports are completely accurate. We needed a cost effective data quality tool which could achieve this and Talend Data Quality met all of these requirements."
Talend VP of Global Sales François Méro said starting a data management project of this scale can be very time consuming and complex due to license and contractual discussions; not to mention very costly.
"Using Talend Data Quality, East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service can continue to push performance levels and provide the local community with an ever improving first class service," Méro said.
