Data Integrity Program Assessment

The first step toward building a comprehensive and compliant Data Integrity program

Data Integrity Program Assessment

The Data Integrity Program Assessment is the first step toward building a comprehensive and compliant Data Integrity program. Our proven and standardised assessment approach to Data Integrity leverages elements that are currently in place, identifies gaps, assigns gap criticality and proposed remediation including quick wins. We assist customers on their digital journey, while helping to ensure that they have confidence in the quality and integrity of the data used to make decisions impacting product quality and patient safety.

The requirement to have one single source of truth and data that is Attributable, Legible, Contemporaneous, Original and Accurate as well as Complete, Consistent, Enduring and Available (ALCOA+) requires expertise that AVEVA can deliver.
