30 Data Cleansing Experts on Twitter to Follow

Data cleansing experts are responsible not only for cleaning and correcting the data but also for ensuring business growth through good data. Sure you can get efficient data cleansing tools but you need a data cleansing expert to ensure that the tools are used to their maximum potential.


Cleaning the data is not as easy as it sounds. It needs determining the errors and typos in the data and then fixing them. Data cleansing experts have to be very vigilant while doing their job as one mistake can lead the whole database to go down the drain.


As stated in our earlier blog it has been noticed that a data scientist spends most of his time cleansing and organizing the data (60%) and rest of the time in building data sets, mining data, etc. If these metrics are to go by, it shows how difficult and time-consuming data cleansing can be and how strictly the experts have to go through the database.


Experts have a lot of insight into data quality management which can be used by us for learning the art of data cleansing.
