This entails proofing the data to determine the validity, veracity and completeness of the data. After the Data Audit, the next step is to build the Data Dictionary. A Data Dictionary is defined as a set of information describing the contents, format, and structure of a database and the relationship between its elements, used to control access to and manipulation of the database. From the Data Dictionary it is possible to build standardised reports, performance dashboards, models and frameworks.
