Data cleansing, sometimes known as data scrubbing, is a way of spotting, correcting and/or removing information in a database that is wrong, incomplete or duplicated. Data cleansing also identifies records deemed irrelevant or unnecessary under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Data cleansing can be done on a regular basis or in one go using software, tools and/or the services of a data cleansing specialist.
Personal data such as postal addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers inevitably go out of date because people move to a new house or change their contact details. For example, The Royal Mail receives up to 5,000 changes to individual address records every day.
Data can also contain errors when it’s input incorrectly, for example, with spelling or formatting mistakes. These are all examples of dirty data.
Data cleaning or cleansing is vital for any organisation that holds data. Data is a valuable asset and in order to make the most of it organisations need to make sure it is accurate. Unclean data, or data that contains errors, can cost a business time and money. For example, sending marketing material to an old postal or email address is a waste of resources. Sending marketing communications multiple times to the same customer, or to a customer who has passed away, can damage an organisation’s reputation and cost it business.
