RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 11, 2011) - Melissa Data Corp, a developer of high performance data quality and address management solutions, today announced the release of its new Contact Verification plug-in designed for Pentaho Data Integration (formerly Kettle). Using a visually-driven user interface, and powered by Melissa Data's Contact Verification engine, the integrated component will parse, validate, correct and standardize U.S. and Canadian addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and full names. The powerful new tool will also geocode addresses to provide latitude/longitude coordinates in addition to other geographic information.

"Creating a plug-in for Pentaho's is a natural fit because such data integration platforms are the natural place for users to perform data quality operations during the ETL process," said Greg Brown, director of marketing for Melissa Data.
