Adding new critical data elements to a party or updating existing critical data

Adding a new critical data element to a party, or changing an existing critical data element, results in suspects being reidentified.

Defining which party elements are critical is external to InfoSphere® MDM. The core of the product relies on a number of externalized rules so that each client can define their own critical data, determine how to search for suspected duplicate parties, how to match parties, and so on. Additionally, the external validation component can be used to identify which critical data elements are mandatory in different transactions, such as adding a party.
