The SDQ Matching Server
The Matching Server provides an embedded matching engine that identifies potential duplicate data within existing accounts, contacts, and prospects in the Siebel transactional database.
The Matching Server uses embedded SSA-NAME3 software from Identity Systems (formerly Search Software America). The SSA-NAME3 dynamic link libraries (DLL) are embedded in Siebel Business Applications and are installed with Siebel Software Installers for Windows and UNIX. The Matching Server does not require additional third-party software installations to function.
The Matching Server works across the languages and platforms supported by Siebel Business Applications. There are different DLLs containing the matching rules for different countries and languages. The term population is used for such a set of matching rules.
