Create multiple sets of Golden Records from the same source data (e.g. Household identification as well as identification of individuals). Survivorship Rule Editor Ability to define a set of survivorship rules that determine which source data (name, attribute, reference) should ‘survive’ in the Golden Record and is supported by two different principles: most recent and trusted source. Additional Features • Export Golden Records with source records –the Golden Record and referenced source records are output on different rows in order to inspect if the match algorithm works properly. • Workflow driven clerical review of possible matches –examine possible matches and determine whether they are indeed matches. • Improved match pair review –evaluate and adjust algorithm, criteria, and weights. The comparison function now outputs individual scores for each scored attribute (name, address, birthdate, etc.) as well as the final comparison score between members. • Enhanced duplicate merge wizard –hide rows with identical values so a user can easily concentrate on the values that are different in the analysis of potential record matches. Overlap Analysis Analyze data that is not yet mastered by STEP to assess whether and to what degree the target data may contribute to matching and thus ultimately to composition of Golden Records. the analysis reports: • Number of records in the input file • Number of records compared to in the hub Match, Link & Identify Existing features for matching and linking multiple records & identification of duplicate objects have been augmented with out- of-the-box features for composition of Golden Records, associated survivorship rules, and messaging to other enterprise systems. • Number of records in the input file that matched one or more member records in the hub • Number of records that did not match to any records in the hub • Match percentage rate • Non-match percentage rate • Number of records in the input file that failed to be compared Look-Up-Before-Create Web Service Call Contributing to on-going data quality by minimizing the risk of creating additional duplicates, the STEP Web Services API provides a ‘look up before create’
