Can you provide more detail regarding it's specifics around de-duplication such as golden record survivorship and any augmentation services it provides?

Hi GaryM

Before I talk about golden record a little more around matching.

Trillium matches at two levels - in effect a grouping (or Level 1) match that by default groups related records - e.g. Households. It then matches for individuals within the group - a level 2 match within level 1. Unlike many competitive tools, which match based on a probability that groups together many separate conditions, Trillium allows you to isolate and test specific match conditions - so that you can easily identify how two records were matched based on the specific set if criteria used.

The platform has a component called the Commoniser which builds a common (or golden) records made up of the best attributes from each record in the set. The Commoniser can be used to build a common record at both level 1 (Household) and Level 2 (Individual) levels. There are multiple criteria that can be used to pick an attribute - without writing code.

In effect, Trillium provides a robust, high performance platform for trusted matching, and building the golden record, that can be plugged into an MDM or CRM application.

It is not a full MDM platform - no repository , no user front end, and no data synchronization. But it does an excellent job of cleansing and consolidating data as part of an MDM architecture.
