Planning service
How the planning service works
The Data Quality Improvement Service can be implemented as a one-off data quality improvement exercise or an on-going service operating on a batch or individual transaction basis. Planning services are available to assess the client's specific requirements, recommend the optimal approach and implement the most appropriate service components.

In addition a free-of-charge data review service is available that allows clients to submit a sample from a dataset and review the results of the data cleansing operations performed on it prior to committing to use the full service.

How the setup or migration service works
Where clients already have an in-house data quality improvement capability, this service allows the same or better functionality to be made available from the cloud either as a one-off quality improvement exercise or as on an-going capability.

Where clients do not already have an in-house data quality improvement capability, this service provides a cloud-based option that avoids the need to maintain in-house skills and technology components.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
Quality Assurance: the Data Quality Improvement Service provides a number of data quality metrics. For example:
- full results of data quality assessment
- percentage of records standardised by the service by standardisation type
- percentage of records enriched by the service by enrichment type
- percentage of duplicates (i.e. how many records are duplicates of another record).

Performance Testing: where the client intends to use the Data Quality Improvement Service on an on-going basis, performance testing can be included to provide metrics on throughput - e.g. records processed per unit of time and/or average transaction processing time.

Extended Support – provides same service levels as Standard Support out-of-hours coverage (evenings, weekends, bank holidays). Additional charges apply depending on requirements.

Application Support – where the Data Quality Improvement Service is integrated into a broader solution, Application Support provides coverage for the whole solution, providing greater value for money than individual support arrangements for each component. Charges depend on the specific characteristics of the solution.

Managed Service – where the Data Quality Improvement Service is integrated into a broader solution, the solution can be operated and maintained by Acuma on behalf of the client as a Managed Service. This can significantly reduce operating costs. Charges depend on the specific characteristics of the solution.
