Verification and Validation

The first step in making the right data-driven marketing and business decisions is to know if your data is robust, accurate and complete. Whether you’re looking for new customers or ensuring you communicate well with current ones, the data you rely on is dynamic and fluid. 

What’s the difference between data verification and validation?

Data ‘validation’ and data ‘verification’ are terms often used interchangeably. Most of us colloquially understand that valid and verified data is data that is accepted and right in some important way. This isn’t wrong: it’s just incomplete.

Both are vital to maintaining high database standards which are properly aligned with industry best practices. Data validation and data verification, used together, are a powerful toolset to ensure your data remains fit for purpose.
