In a brand new partnership, Apatar becomes the first company to provide open source data-quality tools leveraging StrikeIron’s verification Web services. The new release of Apatar Open Source—available as a free download—enables users to extract, verify, and cleanse customer information across databases (e.g., MySQL, Microsoft SQL, Oracle); files (e.g., Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, CSV/TXT files); applications (e.g., Salesforce.com, SugarCRM); and the top Web 2.0 destinations (Flickr, Amazon S3, RSS feeds).
“EmbeddedThe demand for live and accurate data is one of the key drivers of more effective information management.”
According to a report out of Boston-based Aberdeen Group , 52 percent of organizations consider the “verification of data accuracy or completeness” to be one of the biggest customer data-management challenges. StrikeIron Web Services Marketplace supports interactive requests, which will allow Apatar users to instantly validate and update customer data in corporate CRM/ERP applications, Web sites, databases, or flat files.
Apatar will connect with StrikeIron US Address Verification , which instantly validates and enhances any U.S. address; and with StrikeIron Email Verification , which verifies the existence of any email address. Both services allow users to increase productivity, improve the sales process, and improve customer service through faster transaction processing and better accuracy.
“Customer data is only useful when it is accurate,” says Bob Brauer, president and CEO of StrikeIron. “Apatar’s data-integration software combined with StrikeIron’s Web services brings a powerful set of capabilities to users wanting to access the highest quality of data in all of their applications.”
