Taking the Time To Get It Right
Because of the enormous range of products (and the corresponding range in prices), it’s worth taking the time to get the right data cleaning product for your needs. This isn’t just a matter of the size and frequency of the data sets to be cleaned. It’s also important to consider how well the products fit with what you need to do. Don’t neglect the tools that come built into other packages, such as Microsoft SQL Server. They—or Word, Excel, and Access—may be all you need.
