The core concepts of Talend Data Stewardship are campaigns and tasks. It comes with two predefined roles namely: campaign owners and data stewards.
What are the tasks about (data structure, validation constraints, etc.)?
What do data stewards have to do to resolve the campaign tasks (task type)?
Which data stewards work on the campaign tasks (campaign participants)?
How data stewards collaborate to resolve the campaign tasks (campaign workflow)?
A task is the main unit of work for data stewards. A task belongs to a campaign and is assigned to a data steward. It has a lifecycle where it passes through different states according to the workflow defined in the campaign.
One of the solutions Talend Data Stewardship provides is to match, cleanse and master data using a Merging campaign.
The use case described here uses a Merging campaign to illustrate the aspects of reconciling data coming from different sources. However, Talend Data Stewardship supports additional campaign types.
- How do you identify the match groups which group potentially duplicate records together? This question is resolved through using a Talend Job in the Studio.
- How do you pick the best attribute values from the data sources and presents the most accurate and reliable master records for consumptions by users and systems? This issue is resolved through the Merging campaign in the web application.
This use case helps you getting started with Talend Data Stewardship. To replicate the example and use the exact client data, we assume that:
- An administrator has installed and launched Talend Data Stewardship. For more information, see the Talend Data Stewardship Installation Guide.
An administrator has created users and assigned them roles in Talend Administration Center.
For further information, see Creating Data Stewardship users.
- A campaign owner has downloaded the input data and the Talend Job used in the
example. The Job is used to load tasks in the Merging
campaign once it is created.
