One of the main objectives of DataOps is data quality, which affects the overall quality of analytical work carried out in support of tactical and strategic decision-making in organizations.

The DataOps for Data Professionals course primarily focuses on ways to help organizations ensure higher levels of quality of their data as well as some technical and statistical aspects of this process.
