2013-01-09 : Country standardization and similarity evaluation in EasyDQ additionals

We've added two additional transformations to the EasyDQ additionals package, provided by Human Inference.

The two transformations are:
  • Country standardization. This allows you to get direct access to EasyDQ's country standardizer and unify different spellings, formats and more of country names and codes.
  • Similarity evaluator. This feature provides a low-level function for comparing two sets of values. For instance, if you've done a reference data lookup, you will often be interested in knowing if the result of the lookup matches the data that you already have. Using the similarity evaluator you can easily compare the incoming and resulting values and thereby make visible the improvements and changes you are doing to your data with these lookups.
The extension is available, like always, in the Extensions section of the website.
