Optimization Level

Optimization Level

You can configure the
OptimizationLevel
attribute of the
Process
element in
Parameters.xml
to choose between processing speed and quality of verified output. You can set
OptimizationLevel
to one of the following values:
NARROW
Informatica Address Verification honors input assignment strictly, with the exception of separation of House Number from Street information.
STANDARD
Address Verification makes the following element separations.
  • Province from Locality information
  • Postal Code from Locality information
  • House Number from Street information
  • SubBuilding from Street information
  • DeliveryService from Street information
  • SubBuilding from Building information
  • Locality from PostalCode information
WIDE
Address Verification does element separation in the same way it does element separation when you set
OptimizationLevel
to STANDARD. Additionally, Address Verification verifies six parsing candidates to increase the scope of verification and takes additional reference data entries into account for matching.
Consider the following factors when you set the optimization level:
  • If you set the optimization level to WIDE, Address Verification might return addresses with extensive corrections. Extensive corrections to an address might adversely affect the result quality.
  • If you set the optimization level to NARROW, Address Verification requires the minimum processing resources. If you set the optimization level to WIDE, Address Verification requires the maximum processing resources.
  • The
    OptimizationLevel
    setting does not have any impact if the required reference data is not available for the country to which the input address belongs.
