Power BI as a data cleaning tool

Hi,

 

I would like to know your opinions about using Power BI as a data cleansing tool. For example, I have a big dataset with incorrect suburbs. If I want to add suburbs to a new column after reading some other information given in the table, I find Power BI has limited capabilities. Correct me if I am wrong and please share your thoughts?

We tried using Power BI as a data cleansing tool but it simply does not have the capabilities as other tools on the market.  We used WinPure to help profile, clean and match our data before we proceeded to feed it into Power BI.  Although Power BI does have some good data cleaning fucntions, it certainly does not have the data matching power which we found in WinPure's Data Matching Tool
