PiLog's Data Cleansing & Classification

  • Looking for master data cleansing for Material Master, Service Master, Vendor Master, Customer Master, etc?
  • Facing difficulty in creating a new master record?
  • Suffering with various quality issues?
  • Suffering from inconsistencies in the descriptions?
  • Suffering with lack of information?
  • Want to eliminate duplicates within the data?
  • Looking for multi-lingual cataloguing?
  • Looking for standard technical dictionary/taxonomy?
  • Looking for Extension or Supersede of materials in various plants?
  • Want to reduce time?
  • Looking for more accurate purchase order descriptions?

Creation of a record is only a small part of Data Cataloguing. In addition to the multiple levels of data attributes populated, there are quality checks, validations, duplication checks, and even multi-lingual description generation before any record can be finalized. Cataloguing is the standardized process for organizing the presentation of data in a structure valid for each object class.

Master Data Cataloguing is the process of structuring and standardizing how the data will be managed. This includes the use of a technical dictionary to provide rules-based classification templates and data requirements. Cataloguing also provides a method of standardization for abbreviations, description generation, and the highest level of catalog enrichment desired or possible. By utilizing PiLog’s cleansing, cataloguing, and classification services, you are on your way to Quality Master Data.

PiLog offers both the tools and specialized services for managing the Data Cataloguing process. For those times when you have neither the staff nor the expertise to clean, catalogue, and classify your data, PiLog comes to the rescue with our Data Enrichment Labs. Located in India and South Africa, our engineering-trained teams have the extensive skills needed to fulfill your governance process needs.

Using our exclusive industry-standard technical dictionary content, our data teams pore through your existing data to build out a structured, class-defined data set. Based on agreed-upon data standards, our experts enhance the data set, building upon over two decades of PiLog research and development. By utilizing their cleansing, cataloguing, and classification experience, our data stewards focus on enriching your data to its full potential including additional data points, images, and coordination with on-site personnel for physical verification.

For companies that would rather start creating clean, governed data today and worry about the historical data sometime later, PiLog now offers a Cloud-based Cataloguing solution, budgeted to your level of need. Use it to catalogue your data going forward while you assess the historical data separately. This web-based, access-from-anywhere tool links directly to our exclusive Industry Standard Technical Dictionary Content for a complete Master Data Solution. By linking to our unique content, our Cloud-based Cataloguing solution guides the end-users through the step-by-step population of the required fields while validating the information.

Either way, PiLog has the Data Cataloguing solution to fit your need. Contact The Master Data Experts™ from PiLog to solve your Master Data dilemma.
