9780123819727: Entity Resolution and Information Quality

Customers and products are the heart of any business, and corporations collect more data about them every year. However, just because you have data doesn't mean you can use it effectively. If not properly integrated, data can actually encourage false conclusions that result in bad decisions and lost opportunities. Entity Resolution (ER) is a powerful tool for transforming data into accurate, value-added information. Using entity resolution methods and techniques, you can identify equivalent records from multiple sources corresponding to the same real-world person, place, or thing.

This emerging area of data management is clearly explained throughout the book. It teaches you the process of locating and linking information about the same entity - eliminating duplications - and making crucial business decisions based on the results. This book is an authoritative, vendor-independent technical reference for researchers, graduate students and practitioners, including architects, technical analysts, and solution developers. In short, Entity Resolution and Information Quality gives you the applied level know-how you need to aggregate data from disparate sources and form accurate customer and product profiles that support effective marketing and sales. It is an invaluable guide for succeeding in today's info-centric environment.

  • First authoritative reference explaining entity resolution and how to use it effectively
  • Provides practical system design advice to help you get a competitive advantage
  • Includes a companion site with synthetic customer data for applicatory exercises, and access to a Java-based Entity Resolution program.

Product Description:

Entity Resolution and Information Quality presents topics and definitions, and clarifies confusing terminologies regarding entity resolution and information quality. It takes a very wide view of IQ, including its six-domain framework and the skills formed by the International Association for Information and Data Quality {IAIDQ).
The book includes chapters that cover the principles of entity resolution and the principles of Information Quality, in addition to their concepts and terminology. It also discusses the Fellegi-Sunter theory of record linkage, the Stanford Entity Resolution Framework, and the Algebraic Model for Entity Resolution, which are the major theoretical models that support Entity Resolution. In relation to this, the book briefly discusses entity-based data integration (EBDI) and its model, which serve as an extension of the Algebraic Model for Entity Resolution. There is also an explanation of how the three commercial ER systems operate and a description of the non-commercial open-source system known as OYSTER. The book concludes by discussing trends in entity resolution research and practice. Students taking IT courses and IT professionals will find this book invaluable.

From the Back Cover:

Entity Resolution

Accurately integrate your customer and product information to stay ahead of your competition!

This book is comprehensive, timely, and on the leading edge of the topic. In addition to being comprehensive and systematic, the book has two distinct characteristics: (1) it addresses the issue of entity relationships, which go beyond entity matching. This novel approach generates much richer information about entities; (2) it discusses not only techniques, but also systems that implement the techniques. This system-oriented approach helps the reader to see how to apply the techniques for problem solving.

Dr. Hongwei (Harry) Zhu - Assistant Professor of Information Technology in the College of Business and Public Administration, Old Dominion University
