Infoglide Software Corporation of Austin, Texas (www.infoglide.com), and the UALR ERIQ Laboratory signed a collaboration agreement providing ERIQ access to Infoglide’s Identity Resolution Engine (IRE) software for evaluation and research. IRE is Infoglide’s patented identity resolution technology that allows for data matching, auto classification, and data cleansing in applications for data quality and master data management (MDM), including customer data integration (CDI) and product information management (PIM). “We’re proud to be working with a leading center of advanced research focused on entity resolution and information quality,” said Robert Barker, senior vice president at Infoglide Software. “The work in which Dr. Talburt and his team of faculty and students are engaged will continue to push the state of technology forward.” Dr. John R. Talburt, ERIQ Director, is a regular contributor to Identity Resolution Daily, an Internet Blog sponsored by Infoglide. As part of the collaboration, Infoglide will fund a scholarship for students in the UALR Information Quality Graduate Program.
