When we talk about knowing our data, we do not seem to refer to the term data integrity anymore as part of that conversation. After all, that phrase can be intimidating. But at its heart, it is straightforward–guaranteeing our data has meaning. The good news is much of what we already do creates data integrity in our databases.
Watch the educational Geek Sync webinar “Data integrity demystified” with Deborah Melkin to learn more about how the basic constructs in our database design enforce data integrity. We will look at this from table design down through details, like data types and constraints. We will discuss the difference between objects that support data integrity and those that support database performance. At the end of the session, you will have a better understanding of what data integrity is. Also, discover how to implement and enforce it in your databases, and why it is so important for our data.
