  • (1888PressRelease) March 01, 2016 - In an effort to inform the education industry about the value of data matching and record linkage, Connecticut based data quality software company Data Ladder will be hosting a free webinar, "Best Practices in Data Matching for SLDS: Why Minorities are Underrepresented."

    The webinar will explain the issues often encountered by those working with SLDS systems. From managing the constantly changing names within different minority groups to nickname issues, the complexities that often accompany underrepresented groups have not yet been explored until now.

    The importance of data matching for accuracy cannot be overlooked in the fast-growing education industry. In this informative webinar, participants will learn:
    -Why Minorities are Underrepresented
    -Tale of Two Cities: The Impact of Bad Data Matching on Policy Decisions
    -How to Explain to Sponsors the Impact of Good vs. Bad Data Matching
    -Learn Why Many Organizations Are Missing 10% of Matches

    With disparate data sets, there can often be a lack of clarity, leaving executives without the important information they need to plan and conduct research for future education programs and initiatives.

    Data Ladder has worked with clients across many industries in linking and matching data from separate entities, and in all cases have been able to recover at least five percent more matches. The company's flagship software, DataMatch Enterprise, helps clients with various data quality tasks, such as data profiling, record linkage, and data deduplication.

    "We're finding more of our education clients are looking for a robust solution that can grow with the ever-changing needs of the industry," said Nathan Krol, founder and CEO of Data Ladder.

    The webinar will take place Thursday, March 3rd at 2 pm EST/11 am PST. For more information, please visit
