Configuration of Business Rules for Matching

Describe how the system supports the configuration of business rules to support data quality matching processes.

The end user implements Matchcodes that are sets of business rules that tell MatchUp Object which data fields to consider when determining if two records are duplicates. MatchUp Object uses the matchcode to construct a “match key,” a simplified string of characters that represents the information within the record, enough to determine if the given record is unique or a duplicate. The MatchCode editor is a visual program provided to make the design of these rules very easy.
