How data standardization works

Data standardization is the process of transforming data taken from different sources and various formats into a consistent format. Standardizing your data fixes inconsistent capitalization, punctuation, acronyms, non-alphanumeric characters, and values in the wrong fields. Make it easier to identify issues and outliers in your data, and speed up the time it takes for you to get actionable insights from your data.

Our data standardization solution can format all alphabetical characters, standardize abbreviations, and remove extra characters, such as taking parentheses and hyphens out of phone numbers.
