Avexta’s DataSense tackles the challenge of duplicate and near-duplicate records by using text indexing and near-real-time probabilistic scoring to find likely matches in string data.

  • Operating as middleware, DataSense uses APIs and can be deployed within an existing IT environment or in the cloud.
  • DataSense can index millions of records, and the Big Data Enterprise license allows unlimited node indexing and 20 million records per search index.
