Business partner data validation serviceThe Business Partner Data Validation Service enables users to validate business partner data against the complete, or a customly narrowed set of CDL data quality rules. For a custom selection of data quality rules the service consumer can select data quality rule categories and make additional exclusions (e.g. not to use external data sources in order to increase performance). Data quality services
Duplicate identification and resolutionDuplicate matching compares all records of a given set of custom databases to each other, identifies similar records, and groups "best matches" in matching groups. The process to get a duplicate report comprises three steps: (1) select custom databases to be analyzed and a matching configuration to configure the matching algorithm, (2) start a matching job and wait for the result (i.e. record links with similarity score), and (3) generate a duplicate report with (optionally) cleansed golden records for each matching group. Data quality services
Identifier validation serviceThe CDL Identifier Validation Service enables the validation of different identifiers (i.e. Tax numbers, national identifiers and other third party identifiers) with respect to different data quality criteria Data quality services
GDPR screeningThis service enables the identification of records that represent natural persons according to a defined set of rules. Compliance and risk management services
