What is identity resolution?

Identity resolution is a common business use case that involves collecting, matching, and validating people data to create high-quality customer profiles. These customer profiles, also known as identity graphs, provide companies with consumer insights to enhance account-based marketing strategies.

Identity resolution involves three steps: onboarding people data, generating an identity graph, and implementing identity resolution procedures. More specifically, it is common for companies to outsource this process to people search sites and identity resolution software that specializes in providing streamlined identity resolution services. 

On a more technical level, people search sites are able to leverage people data, such as Coresignal’s public resume data and business-related social platforms, to help build their identity resolution platform. People search sites are able to onboard external third-party people data, train algorithms to generate identity graphs for end-users, and sometimes offer solutions or services from insights discovered by the identity graph. 

Additionally, some companies are able to create unique in-house identity resolution solutions. For example, some businesses and investors might leverage people data to enrich their existing customer and prospective client databases or to enhance fraud detection processes. To better understand these processes, let’s take a look at the types and processes of identity resolution. 

Types of identity resolution 

Identity resolution consists of two main types: probabilistic and deterministic. Probabilistic identity resolution involves the calculation of ID matching with algorithms. These algorithms track the anonymized identifiers of online users, such as IP addresses, devices, browsers, and locations. On the other hand, deterministic identity resolution involves the calculation of ID matching by analyzing authorized first-party or individual data such as email addresses, phone numbers, and online transactions. 

How does identity resolution work? 

As previously mentioned, identity resolution involves three steps: onboarding people data, generating identity graphs, and implementing identity resolution processes and strategies. Essentially, these steps work together with other technologies to craft in-depth and unique customer profiles that monitor the interests and general public web behavior of prospective, current, and previous customers. Let’s take a closer look at the three steps involved in identity resolution.

Data onboarding

Data onboarding involves the uploading or collection of customer data from internal and external online databases for sorting, validation, matching, and further processing. Customer data points are collected from social media platforms, public online business interactions, web browsing data, and more. 

Identity graphs

After the customer data has been collected and processed, customer identifiers that can be associated with individual customers construct a detailed customer profile from business interactions across different channels. Identity graphs typically contain information that indicates online behavior, personal interests, buying patterns, and general information about a particular customer. 

Implementation 

Lastly, implementing resolution strategies can include the integration of various levels of marketing tools and technologies. Because identity resolution involves various sub-use-cases, implementation ranges from developing personalized marketing campaigns to monitoring online channels for fraud detection.
