Melissa Data Announces Community Editions of its Flagship Data Quality Components for SQL Server

Enables Advanced Formatting and Address Parsing Features;Freely Available to SSIS Data Integration Developers

Rancho Santa Margarita, CALIF. – September 10, 2013 – Melissa Data, a leading provider of contact data quality and integration solutions, today announced availability of selected Community Editions of its Data Quality Components for SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), including Contact Verify and MatchUp components. With Contact Verify CE and MatchUp CE, data integration developers now have ready access to sophisticated address parsing, formatting and matching.

“In many of the community forums, we’ve seen developers discussing and tackling address parsing as a complex issue,” said Bud Walker, director of data quality solutions, Melissa Data. “Since our verification tools have already solved the parsing dilemma, we decided to make the product available in a community edition so developers no longer need to worry about building a parser from the ground up. This saves valuable time, effort and money to allow developers to concentrate on bigger issues.”

Contact Verify CE enables address, phone and name parsing, and email syntax correction. MatchUp CE provides deduplication of up to 50,000 records using nine basic matchcodes. Melissa Data’s Community Editions of Data Quality Components for SSIS are freely downloadable with no license required.
