Overview

IBM Information Server QualityStage Module for SERP delivers an add-on module for QualityStage V8.0 that can help you receive a direct cost savings through postal discounts with the Canada Post. If your business depends on direct mailings, you can receive significant discounts, helping to build a strong case for return on investment.

Canada Post's Software Evaluation and Recognition Program (SERP) evaluates software packages that validate and correct postal address information in accordance with defined specifications. With the IBM Information Server QualityStage Module for SERP, QualityStage customers can take advantage of address enrichment and certification routines for Canada. Functionality includes:

  • Enrichment of address data from postal code through house number, correcting information in parallel
  • Overlay of address elements to increase match rates with trusted information
  • Support for Linux™, Windows®, and UNIX® operating systems

Organizations that want to ensure the accuracy of address data and take advantage of discounted mailings, including incentive lettermail, addressed admail, and publications mail, need to cleanse address information using a certified software solution. The IBM Information Server QualityStage Module for SERP provides a certified offering for QualityStage clients.

IBM Information Server Data Quality Module for SAP extends the capability of IBM's prebuilt, certified solution for SAP to include postal validation of customer and business partner address information as defined by SAP's BC-BAS-PV specification. The primary capability includes both real-time and batch-based address cleansing for SAP implementations.

The IBM Information Server Data Quality Module for SAP is an independently available module designed to add significant value to SAP implementations that include R/3, mySAP, and SAP ERP. The module works through an interface specification designed by SAP. By using this specification and obtaining certification from SAP, you are provided with a low-risk, safe solution with the SAP seal of approval.

The previous version of the solution provided Duplicate Check and Error-tolerant Search (DES) and was also certified by SAP. This release of the module enables not only smart search and duplicate prevention, but also the verification of address information. Gartner estimates that data degrades in quality at a rate of approximately 2% per month and address data is certainly no exception.

The module now provides instant feedback to end users and enables them to correct addresses, maximizing valuable customer interactions such as direct marketing or support. In addition, the module continuously cleanses address data in the SAP database.

Description

Accessibility by people with disabilities

You can request a U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) at

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

IBM Information Server QualityStage Module SERP is capable as of March 12, 2008, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. You may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement (PoE). It is your responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

Product positioning

IBM Information Server QualityStage Module for SERP

IBM Information Server QualityStage Module for SERP complements a QualityStage implementation by ensuring the completeness, consistency, and validity of critical Canadian address information in corporate databases. It is intended to be sold or positioned either to new QualityStage implementations or to existing implementations to take advantage of Canada Post's SERP program.

IBM Information Server Data Quality Module for SAP

While a standard SAP implementation does nothing to ensure that customer and business partner data is accurate and unique (free of duplicates), this module ensures that data is entered accurately and is maintained and cleansed on an ongoing basis. This solution may be positioned independently of IBM Information Server QualityStage, which is employed as the supercharged matching engine behind the module.

The greatest value of this solution is derived when it is implemented as part of a larger, comprehensive data integration and quality approach that utilizes the power and flexibility of IBM Information Server. This enables companies to profile and analyze SAP data over time, cleanse data, and handle any necessary data integration tasks, all from the leading information integration platform in the industry.

Charge metrics definitions

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices. A PoE must be obtained for each server regardless of the number of processors and partitions in the server on which the program runs or for each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.
