Melissa Data to Highlight Data Quality Solutions at COLLABORATE 12: Technology and Applications Forum for the Oracle Community

Booth Demo Showcases Contact Zone Open Source Data Integration Software for Sophisticated Contact Data Quality; Full Functionality of Melissa Data's Powerful Data Quality Libraries and Data Quality Web Services Within PL/SQL Available to Oracle DBAs

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Apr 23, 2012) -

Melissa Data, a leading provider of contact data quality and integration solutions, will be exhibiting at COLLABORATE 12 and demonstrating Contact Zone, its flagship open source data integration software optimized for sophisticated contact data quality.

Contact data is always in flux and can quickly deteriorate. As more organizations seek to improve operational costs, increase revenues, and manage risks by capitalizing on their return on data, they realize that the quality of the data itself must be managed effectively. An accurate, single view of these critical information assets can dramatically reduce waste while significantly improving customer communication and business intelligence efforts.

Melissa Data's COLLABORATE 12 exhibit will include a demonstration of Contact Zone which allows users to easily target the data to be cleaned by applying a simple drag-and-drop tool via an intuitive visual interface. Addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses are easily parsed, validated and corrected for improved segmentation and targeting. Records are updated with U.S. and Canada change-of-address information to help companies stay in touch with moving customers, maximize postal discounts, and reduce undeliverable-as-addressed mail.

In addition, Oracle DBAs will learn how to easily invoke Melissa Data's powerful Data Quality libraries and Data Quality Web services within PL/SQL to cleanse, verify and enrich postal addresses, names, phones, emails, move-update, and geocode directly within PL/SQL functions and procedures.

Monday, April 23rd through Wednesday, April 25th

Mandalay Bay Convention Center
Booth #1621
