To identify matching records, Trillium Quality for Dynamics compares the data in specific fields to determine the level of similarity between them. When a new record is entered, Trillium Quality for Dynamics:

  • Constructs window keys for the new record and determines if any existing records have the same window key(s), making them match candidates.

  • Sends records with the same window key(s) to the matcher, which compares the data.

  • Direct and indirect (inferred) matches are identified by the matcher. Direct matches are assigned a numeric Pattern ID. Indirect matches are not given a Pattern ID; they will be identified with the word “Link.”

Each of the matching steps is described in the following sections.

Note: This appendix describes matching during real-time data entry. Determining matches using the Standard Batch Manager or during a data import is similar, but all database records are compared in one process.
