What is the difference between data conversion and data cleansing?

Data conversion is the process of transforming data from one format to another. While the definition of data conversion may be straightforward, the process itself isn’t. Converting data can be a challenging process; it involves extracting data from its original source, transforming the data into the desired format, and finally, loading the data into a new location.

Data cleansing, also known as data scrubbing, is the process of “cleaning up” data. A data cleanse involves the rectification or deletion of outdated, incorrect, redundant, or incomplete data from a database. The goal of data cleansing is to make sure that the information contained within a database is accurate and complete.

An example of data cleansing would be taking data from a pension organization’s legacy system, then running a data-cleansing tool to identify duplicate records to correct the redundancies.
