Expert Data Alignment

EEDAR maintains an internal staff of data experts who are carefully trained to deal with the complex relationships and integration issues multiple data sources present.

With a suite of proprietary tools and pre-existing alias mappings across the vast majority of data sources in the video game industry, EEDAR's internal expertise will help you to avoid many delays and pitfalls along the consolidation path.

Ongoing Integration and Reconciliation

Simply integrating data one time is not sufficient to ensure a reliable data consolidation system. Many providers deliver daily estimates with periodic reconciliation files or have data which could potentially overlap with other internal or external data sources to cause duplication.

EEDAR’s experts work to eliminate potential errors during the data transformation process, and provide ongoing reconciliation support to maintain the integrity of data, regardless of its source.

Rich Data Validation

EEDAR has a full-time staff of internal researchers that curate each product’s metadata by hand, and are constantly validating both our internal data and data from partners. Our deep experience working across the entire gamut of data sources ensures that all systems have appropriate validation (human or automated).
