Data Update: Around the World in 80 Days

The past 80 days have been monumental in expanding our global data asset. From building person-email links in Brazil to onboarding Norwegian telephones to expanding our knowledge of Malaysian names, we journeyed “around the world” in the last three months. And expanding to all corners of the world is not an easy feat. Naming conventions are vastly different between Western and Eastern cultures, so normalizing Spanish and Indonesian names was a big challenge. Thinking about how to qualify a valid address in Malaysia required a new set of considerations as compared to qualifying a German residence. Despite these challenges and more, we’re excited to offer you the latest coverage improvements to our Identity Graph.
