Q:

Can you identify some companies and products (other than Vality Corp. and their Integrity product) that can perform probabilistic matching on company names?

A:

Michael Jenning’s Answer: AMB DataMiners Relationship Finder, ArkiData Detective, Avellino Discovery, Firstlogic i.d. Centric, Trillium. Chuck Kelley’s Answer: The ones that come to mind first are Trillium, First Logic and Innovative Systems. However, company name matching, without anything else, is quite a daunting task (with address it is a bit easier). DM Review’s Web site (www.dmreview.com) has an area that will give you a list of other companies that claim to do this. Go to the side bar under “general resources” and “vendor categories,” then choose from the drop down box (select by category) the category you want – data quality, for example. – Click submit and *Presto* a list of vendors who claim to have data quality products!

Larissa Moss’ Answer: Try the company FirstLogic (i.d.Centric product). They have extensive name matching capabilities.
