Definition

What is list matching?

List matching is the process of combining lists residing at disparate sources, identifying rows that represent the same individual, and merging those rows to attain a complete and concise list where each row represents a real-word object.

List matching is commonly used in getting a holistic view of contacts and other entities by consolidating their information spread across multiple vendor, client, and partner datapoints received at regular intervals. By establishing unique IDs and match definitions to identify mis-keyed, abbreviated, and phonetic matches within and across multiple lists, companies can determine golden records and remove conflicting and duplicate entries.

Process

How does list matching work?​

Combine and profile lists

Bring lists together at one place and build quick data quality summary report to highlight missing, incomplete, or invalid values present and identify potential list cleansing opportunities.

Perform list matching

Match rows within and across lists and identify potential rows that relate to the same individual or entity. Lists usually lack uniquely identifying attributes, and so a combination of intelligent fuzzy matching algorithms may be needed to increase list matching accuracy.

Finalize and export list

Export the final list in the format of your choice or load it back to the required database, cloud store, or other web application.

Clean and standardize lists

Perform data cleansing activities to remove statistical and structural anomalies from rows of lists, such as removing leading and trailing spaces, replacing null values, fixing punctuation errors, and more.

Merge and deduplicate list rows

Merge data from duplicate rows with the help of deduplication and survivorship rules, so that maximum information is retained and combined into one golden list which represents complete view of all individuals.

Finalize and export list

Export the final list in the format of your choice or load it back to the required database, cloud store, or other web application.
