Melissa Data solutions include tools to profile, cleanse, verify, and match contact data, including address, name, phone and email; the company will be featuring these tools at PASS Summit 2012.

"Typically, basic matching and profiling have been available exclusively for Enterprise Edition users of Microsoft SQL Server," said Bud Walker, director of data quality solutions for Melissa Data. "Today, we offer the full spectrum of data quality -- including advanced matching and de-duping with our new MatchUp component -- for all editions of SQL Server. MatchUp includes a full toolbox of general string fuzzy algorithms, and leverages our 27 years of experience working with addresses and names to build sophisticated matching rules."
