QDflows: A System Driven by Knowledge Bases for Designing Quality-aware Data Flows

In the Big data era, data integration is becoming increasingly important. It is usually handled by data flows processes that extract, transform, and clean data from several sources, and populate the Data Integration System (DIS). Designing data flows is facing several challenges. In this paper, we deal with data quality issues such as: (1) expressing a set of quality rules, (2) enforcing them on the DIS to detect violations, and (3) repairing inconsistencies. We propose QDflows, a system for designing quality-aware data flows that considers as input: (1) a high quality Knowledge Base (KB) as the global schema of integration, (2) a set of data sources and a set of validated users requirements, (3) a set of defined mappings between data sources and the KB, and (4) a set of quality rules specified by the users. QDflows uses an ontology to design the DIS schema. It offers the ability to define the DIS ontology as a module of the knowledge base, based on the validated users requirements. The DIS ontology model is then extended with multiple types of quality rules specified by users. QDflows extracts and transforms data from the sources in order to populate the DIS. It detects violations of the quality rules enforced on the DIS, constructs repair patterns, searches for horizontal and vertical matches in the knowledge base, and performs an automatic repair when possible or generates possible repairs. It interactively involves users to validate the repair process before loading the clean data into the DIS. Using real-life and synthetic datasets, DBpedia and Yago knowledge bases, we experimentally evaluate the generality, effectiveness, and efficiency of QDflows. We also showcase an interactive tool implementing our system.
