Data Quality monitoring allows you to keep an eye on the quality trends of your data. Results are stored over a period of time so that you can do trend analysis.
Data profiling allows you to automatically recognize business rules and data relationships (across columns or fields) that might otherwise go unnoticed. SAP Information Steward lets you perform the profiling directly within a current data warehouse. With the software, you can establish data-range parameters and create automated alerts that will notify you if the analysis results exceed a specific parameter.
Information Steward offers an intuitive business-user interface that helps guide users through data profiling, metadata management as well as data quality monitoring. And it provides data quality dashboards that allow users to continuously monitor and govern their information.
