Define a test in the Data Validation Client based on enterprise data that you want to validate.
Run the test from the Data Validation Client or from DVOcmd. Data Validation Option generates a mapping and session and it stores them in the PowerCenter Repository.
The PowerCenter Integration Service connects to the data sources and applies the test to the data.
The PowerCenter Integration Service writes the test results to the Data Validation Option repository.
You can run reports against the repository views that contain the test results.
