Software AG and Loqate Partner to Enhance Data Quality Solution

Software AG’s webMethods OneData master data management solution to integrate Loqate’s address verification technology.

RESTON, Va., 9/26/2013

Software AG, a global leader in business processes, integration and big data, today announced a new partnership with Loqate, a leader in international address verification, which will provide powerful address validation and geocoding capabilities to business processes, services applications and business intelligence systems. Software AG will offer and support the Loqate Engine as an integrated component of webMethods OneData, the company’s master data management (MDM) platform.

"In today’s expanding digital enterprise, having the highest quality data possible to drive business processes and analytics isn’t just a best practice, it’s a necessity," said Jay Johnson, President & CEO, Software AG North America and member of the Group Executive Board. "Loqate’s address validation and geocoding technologies provide another layer of richness to refine existing and captured datasets. This in turn lets our customers unlock new data potentials to drive more efficient and effective business processes."

By combining the Loqate Engine with Software AG’s Integration platform and solutions, customers will now have a higher level of data quality with Loqate’s address capture, verification and geocoding technologies.

In addition to enriching data by providing missing attributes such as postal codes, integrating Loqate’s technology with Software AG will provide customers with solutions to help refine and cleanse disparate geolocation data and to automatically normalize data to enhance matching operations (e.g. "New Jersey" to "NJ").

"Address data is an asset that drives business processes in almost every business function," said Martin Turvey, President and CEO, Loqate. "Cleaner data drives better location intelligence and ultimately, leads to more informed and accurate business decisions, affecting the bottom line."

With the integration of Loqate technology into Software AG’s product portfolio, customers will be able to purchase it as part of Software AG’s MDM solution and support will be provided by Software AG.
