Instructor Led Workshop
Instructors: Brian Pont, Cathleen Gracey, Bo Guo
Data validation is critical to ensuring data quality. In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to build data validation workflows and perform schema mapping with FME, using a simple drag-and-drop interface. No coding is required. Attendees will be walked through tutorials where they learn to create workflows that identify, quantify, and fix data problems, filter out invalid records, flag null values, and perform schema mapping. This workshop will also demonstrate how to automate these processes, setting them up to run on their own or according to business rules. Additionally, attendees will learn how to publish their data validation workflows for others to use, for example to provide a data upload and validation service where colleagues can confidently update a database or web service in real-time. Examples will be used to demonstrate how such workflows can solve real world challenges. Attendees will walk away with a solid understanding of how to efficiently approach data validation and schema mapping for their workplace.
Fully-configured laptops will be provided for up to 18 attendees.
