Informatica Address Verification can identify and categorize address elements and nonaddress elements.
Address Verification can parse fielded and unfielded addresses and return addresses that follow the address structure of the country to which the address belongs. A fielded address contains well-defined address element fields. An unfielded address contains lines of address data that include both address and nonaddress elements. An input address might also contain incorrectly assigned elements or elements that are incorrectly combined with unrelated elements.
Address parsing in Address Verification does not use the reference address databases. You can use the PARSE mode to parse addresses even if you do not have the corresponding reference address databases. When you run address verification in other process modes such as BATCH or CERTIFIED, Address Verification parses the address before the verification process begins. During the verification process, Address Verification might readjust the parsed results based on the reference address data.
Address Verification uses the
attribute setting of the
to correctly identify address elements for parsing. If Address Verification fails to identify an element in a fielded address input, Address Verification returns the element in the same field in which it was input.
