Ask any data analyst and they will tell you in no uncertain terms how important it is to work with quality data. Quality must be paramount to properly analyze data and glean important information from it. Likewise, master data management (MDM) is a key activity required of data analysts to ensure that information and business work in concert to ensure the completeness and proper care of important data. In this course, you will explore the importance of data quality, including common issues, best practices, and data quality tools. Then you will dig into examples of data quality, data validation, and types of data validation. Next, you will focus on data quality dimensions, data quality metrics, and validation methods. Finally, you'll learn about Master Data Management (MDM), MDM processes, and the importance of MDM. This course can be used to prepare for CompTIA Data+ (DA0-001) exam.
