As government becomes more digitized, data quality management becomes ever more critical

From local municipalities to federal agencies, digital transformation — greatly accelerated by COVID-19 — is changing the paradigm of what government service looks like. But with the promise of “anytime from anywhere” digital convenience also comes the pressure to find smart ways to resolve identities, secure data access and enable more integration across channels and stakeholders. LexisNexis® Risk Solutions solves these challenges for government at every level.

Achieve These Results

It’s impossible to make sound decisions if you can’t trust the quality of the data. Lack of meaningful data sets also hinders the ability to deliver an equitable, low-friction experience to the people who depend on your services. 

Data must be accurate, complete and continually updated. That’s where we come in. LexisNexis® Risk Solutions leads the market in delivering the reliable identity data that’s foundational to consistent, streamlined experiences. 

Our data assets are second to none: We can help you validate, update and enhance consumer and business profiles by referencing against 83 billion public and proprietary records from more than 10,000 sources. Sources that help you see more of — and deeper into — diverse populations:

  • On the consumer side, 724 million unique identities including individuals who are unbanked and underbanked, which accounts for 22% of U.S. adults. 
  • Plus, 220 million unique active and inactive businesses — even many operating under a name different from the legal entity.

Frequent data updates for the freshest information: Our systems make more than 80 million record updates each month from public records, internal government databases, credit bureaus and alternative data sources. By delivering the most accurate and complete data, you reduce errors and gaps that create inefficiency and waste across your programs. You also have the best starting point to facilitate easy, efficient constituent outreach, with more personalized interactions. 

Not only that, insightful data improves risk decision-making. If information doesn’t match up, it’s more likely to be questionable, not just outdated. 

Proven best practices, expert guidance: The strength of our technology and domain expertise has made LexisNexis® Risk Solutions a trusted partner resource to organizations that are looking for a balanced approach to security, privacy, efficiency and quality of experience. Our clients include:

  • 80% of federal agencies
  • 70% of local governments
  • 8 of the world’s top 10 banks
  • 70%+ of Fortune 500 companies

No individual or business is a discrete island. Your databases shouldn’t be either. Standardize data sets to get a single, connected view of individuals and businesses across channels. It starts with LexisNexis® Scalable Automated Linking Technology (SALT), a statistically based approach that accounts for fuzzy matching. It’s paired with our proprietary LexID® unique identifier, which resolves identities with over 99.99% precision. LexID gives you a non-SSN and non-FEIN-dependent identifier to compliantly support data sharing initiatives while mitigating the risk of exposing personal information.

SALT and LexID come together to deliver powerful capabilities:

  • See the hidden connections between individuals, businesses, their extended relationships and other data points in the context of the whole
  • More easily ingest, standardize, and make sense of data from other programs, agencies or partners
  • Resolve duplicate and/or conflicting records
  • And more.
