Ensuring data quality throughout your system shouldn’t be a daunting task for any Aeries administrator. With so many requirements for state and federal reporting, not to mention local business rules, how can you quickly identify and resolve problems with all of your data?
That's where Aeries' powerful new Data Validation system comes to the rescue. Validation rules can be defined — or applied right away from samples provided by Aeries — to check for anomalies in data and report those issues to the staff who can correct them. Best of all this core functionality is free and is included with the SIS; you only need to contact us to activate it!
Here are some examples of how Data Validation can help:
Data validation promotes accountability for the staff responsible for data entry and reduces the burden on the Aeries administrator to be the perpetual fixer-of-bad-inputs. Validations can be established for simple things like making sure every student has a birth date populated or comparing two fields for consistency. It also scales to more complex functions like ensuring that enrollment and program dates do not overlap. The system has been designed to be as flexible as possible, leveraging the powerful nature of SQL queries to create the definitions. Since definitions are defined in SQL, the types of validations that can be created are virtually limitless!
At Aeries we're building a world where data always empowers, never impedes and we know that Data Validation is a step in the right direction.

Note: Multifactor Authentication must be enabled for Admins before the Data Validation Definitions page will display. This added layer of security is essential due to the implications of executing custom SQL statements via a Data Validation Definition.
