Welcome to Rosette Match Studio! Also known as RMS, this is an interactive tool for evaluating and configuring Rosette Name Indexer (RNI) for record matching. Rosette Match Studio uses Rosette Name Indexer (RNI) for fuzzy name retrieval and name matching. It includes a multitude of configurable parameters which can be used to optimize the tool for a given use case.
Matching refers to the process of comparing identifying information about an individual, such as their name, company, address, and/or age, between two records. With Rosette Match Studio, you can enter one or more pieces of identifying information and it will return a list of potential matches from your loaded index. Each match will have a score, between 0 and 100%, indicating the match strength.
Name matching is the core of multi-field entity matching. Names are complex to match because of the large number of variations that occur within a language and across languages. These include, but are not limited to, typographical errors, phonetic spelling variations, transliteration differences, initials, and nicknames.
Over the course of this tutorial you will learn how to import an index, search for names within it, edit search and match configurations, perform evaluations, and more. This quick start guide will focus only on name matching. However, many of the concepts we will discuss can be applied to other data types as well. For more information on matching other fields, see the Rosette Match Studio Help.
At any point while using Rosette Match Studio you can hover over Help on the navigation bar and select Documentation to open the user guide.
