    Hi Dinesh,
    As far as cleanse, what exactly do you mean? Do you simply mean putting in a structured format so you can use it within hive?

    Not just to achieve structured data which we can do using Hcatalog, any other transforms that we can apply to eliminate duplicates or just to trim the data, so that we can achieve pure data in HDFS?

    Can you please take a look and let us know if this is helpful?
