General Edit

Data synchronization is

[t]he comparison and reconciliation of interdependent data files at the same time so that they contain the same information.[1]
the process of establishing consistency among data from a source to a target data storage and vice versa and the continuous harmonization of such data over time. Hence, biometrics systems which are not properly synchronized could result in de-linked data, rendering them unreliable.[2]

U.S. military Edit

Data synchronization is

[p]olicies and procedures that govern consistency, accuracy, reliability, and timeliness of data used and generated by the Army. It addresses data planning, storage, scheduling, maintenance, and exchange among authorized users.[3]
