Introduction In a digital world of ever-increasing data, quality assurance is essential. Quality data ensures digital content and services utilizing that data can live up to customer and user expectations. Quality data is accurate, reliable, and of high value and is critical in obtaining and maintaining customer satisfaction and trust. In this article, I will discuss how to ensure the data you are working with meets these three criteria. Accuracy For data to be deemed accurate, it needs to be free from any errors or discrepancies. This means that any data inputted must be thoroughly vetted for accuracy before entering it into the database. A common way to prevent incorrect data from entering the database is to develop fail-safes such as forced entry of data in predetermined formats, validation of rules, and comparisons with external databases. Any data that looks strange or is outside of predetermined parameters should be investigated to maintain accuracy. Reliability Reliability of data means that the data is stored securely and consistently and is free from corruption or theft. Data should always be stored in multiple locations and backed up regularly, so that it is available even if one version of the data is corrupted or lost. Database administrators should stay up-to-date on security practices to protect against cyber threats and data should always be handled confidentially. High Value Data should always be of high value and should be updated regularly to prevent it from becoming obsolete. Data should be used to help business decision-making, detect customer preferences and trends, improve customer service, optimize processes, and much more. Databases should be monitored and analysed regularly to ensure relevancy, accuracy, and value of the data in it. Conclusion Overall, quality data is an essential part of day-to-day operations. Prudent monitoring and vetting of data must be done in order to ensure it’s accuracy, reliability, and value. Doing so will protect businesses, customers, and users from any issues or discrepancies resulting from poor quality data. This will also ensure that any digital content or services a businesses may be providing reflect their intended vision and adhere to customer expectations.
