1. What is Data Profiling tool (DPT)
Data profiling tool is computer software application/program developed by M/s Infosys to find out the discrepancies in the currently running database of Sanchay Post application. This application can be installed and executed as per instructions issued by SDC, Chennai.
2. Output of Data Profiling Tool
Data profiling tool generates and provides the data discrepancies outcome in form of CSV files. Out of the generated CSV files one encrypted file is generated containing “_ency.csv” characters. The file name will be prefixed with some other characters also. Example:
Overall Summary Report 8 Jun 2013 13.9.58_ency.csv
The file containing “_ency.csv” characters is the encrypted file and cannot be read. Any attempt to modify this file will corrupt the file. For reading purpose non-encrypted file is also generated by the tool.
