Carefully Monitor These Five Metrics

It is crucial to monitor and measure the different metrics of the data and combine them into a single number called a Data Trust Score, which represents the level of confidence in the data.

And that’s exactly what The Talend Trust Score™ does. It aggregates five metrics into a single and easy-to-understand score, that scales from 0 to 5. These metrics are:

Data Validity

measures the quality of the dataset itself, with the number of valid and invalid values across the dataset sample, as well as the use of semantic types.

Data Completeness

measures the number of empty records in your sample.

Data Popularity

measures the reliability of the dataset, based on user ratings and certification level.

Data Discoverability

reflects how well-documented your dataset is, with the use of proper metadata such as a description, tags, custom attributes, as well as the presence of an API. A well-documented dataset is easier to find.

Data Usage

shows how much your dataset is used as a source for pipelines or preparations.

The Talend Trust Score™ is updated every time an action impacting those parameters is performed.

You can improve the Talend Trust Score™ of your dataset by using Talend Cloud Data Preparation, Talend Cloud Pipeline Designer, and Talend Cloud Data Inventory.
