Name Standardization
Name standardization is the process in which a given name is broken down into its constituent parts.  OpenDQ uses a combination of advanced parsing, data dictionaries, and fuzzy matching to standardize names in free form text.  OpenDQ’s Name Parser component parses names into the following fields:
  • Title
  • Salutation
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Middle Name
  • Suffix
  • Prefix
