The Data Matching Institute is Here

Within data management we already have “The MDM Institute”, “The Data Governance Institute” and “The Data Warehouse Institute (TDWI)” and now we also have “The Data Matching Institute”.

TDMIThe founder of The Matching Institute is Alexandra Duplicado. Aleksandra says: “The reason I founded The Institute of Data Matching is that I am sick and tired of receiving duplicate letters with different spellings of my name and address”. Alex is also pleased about, that she now have found a nice office in edit distance of her home.

Before founding The Matching of Data Institute Alexander worked at the Universal Postal Union with responsibility for extra-terrestrial partners. When talking about the future of The Match Institute Sasha remarks: “It is a matter of not being too false positive. But it is a unique concept”.

One of the first activities for The Data-Matching Institute will be organizing a conference in Brussels. Many tool vendors such as Statistical Analysis System Inc., Dataflux and SAS Instiute will sponsor the Brüssel conference. I hope to join many record linkage friends in Bruxelles says Alexandre.

The Institute of Matching of Data also plans to offer a yearly report on the capabilities of the tool vendors. Asked about when that is going to happen Aleksander says: “Without being too deterministic a probabilistic release date is the next 1st of April”.
