Navigate to Reports >> Generate Report >> Data Audit >> Data Quality.

 

How does it work?

The report checks the system for all your important data elements and create a checklist, as well as exception reports to show you what needs your attention.  Effectively, this report acts as an energy manager telling you what areas of the system need more data before running the energy management, bill processing or analytics product.  To do so, the report follows the following structure:

  • A quality summary tab which displays data completion for each customer group and data element, as well as an indicator of the products available for your data quality.
  • Detailed tabs for each of the data elements with actionable information that list out anything missing.

 

Group Quality Summary

Below is a screenshot of the summary tab, let’s try and go through it.

  1. The red section is where the data completion percentages per data element is shown for each group. These percentages give indications on what needs fixing.  The goal is to hit the 100% completion mark.  Therefore, any percentage lower than 100% should be targeted. These percentages are calculated as an expression of the number of meters you are missing data for, against the total number of meters you are expecting data for.  This means that if data is present for 8 out of 10 meters and missing data for 2 meters, then the data completions is 80%.
  1. The green section is where you can see what products are available to run based on the data elements completion percentages. Below is a breakdown showing what elements are necessary for each of the products:
    • Data Platform
      • Site Data
      • Meter Data
      • Reactive Meter Data
    • Bill Processing
      • Site Data

  1. The purple section shows the available tabs you can navigate through to access the detailed exception reports for each. Please note that if the data element completion is at 100%, the respective tab will be blank as there are no exceptions(data missing). Now that we have gone through the Group Quality summary, let’s look into what each of the tabs show us. Below is a breakdown of the information displayed for each tab in the cases where there will be data missing.
