This webinar is for managers and engineers who want to learn a systematic method and the basic concepts that will soundly guide you to select a name matching technology to solve a business issue. You will learn about “precision” and “recall” which measure accuracy and what constitutes quality test data. Most importantly, you will learn how to determine the baseline accuracy of your current system to see how much better (or worse) an alternative might be, using an objective and repeatable approach.
We will start with recommendations for good test data, accuracy metrics, and finally what other considerations and questions you should ask about each tool. By the end, you will know how to pick the tool that will best serve your business needs, whether for watchlist screening, master data management (e.g., customer 360), or searching for records using names.
