Unprecedented volumes of data — customer data, product data, statistics, financials — are being shared between organizations every day in the form of “flat files.” But how do you guarantee secure and accurate transfer of data when the foundation is as primitive as a CSV?

The Wild West of Data is a place where sometimes the first name comes first and sometimes it comes last; where US postal codes may comprise 5 digits or 9 digits depending on who entered the data; where dimensions may be documented in metric or imperial units; and where the order and names of each of these columns may be spelled, designated and formatted in any number of perfectly legal and acceptable, yet maddeningly differing ways.

Join us for a free webinar and hear Eric Crane and Ashley Mulligan of Flatile discuss what dev teams need to consider to get a handle on the Wild West of Data, where rules and best practices are shot from the hip.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why data onboarding is mission critical

  • What's often forgotten during planning

  • How to handle the data that you can't plan for

"Ask any developer and they will tell you: making heads or tails of flat files can take weeks or months — and that's before you even get to start working with the data."
