Melissa Data has introduced a SOAP interface for Data Quality Web Service (DQWS), a data-entry verification service that can validate and correct postal addresses, update phone area codes, parse names and append gender, and spot fraudulent entries. The product can be used to verify customer leads generated from Web sites or call centers. After calling the Web service, addresses are verified to meet U.S. Postal Service requirements. The service first verifies, corrects and standardizes an address, and then appends a ZIP+4 code to it. It then links the address to a time zone, congressional district or county. It also returns latitude and longitude coordinates, which can be used to calculate distances. The product’s ZIP Data function can return all the cities served by a ZIP code, as well as return the ZIP codes available for a location. A Street Search feature can also be used to resolve multiple matches of street names. Annual pricing for Data Quality Web Service depends on the number of records processed per year: 120,000 records are priced at $2,900; 600,000 records is $4,900; 1.2 million records cost $5,900; 5 million records are $6,900; and an unlimited number of records is available for $8,900.

SpArk Version 1.0
SpArk Version 1.0 is an ActiveX component that is said to simplify the task of calling SQL Server stored procedures.

The procedure can then be executed in one line of code instead of the many lines it usually requires. SpArk accelerates code generation because developers no longer have to remember the details of each stored procedure (names, arguments, data types, return values and functionality). SpArk also executes the procedure, freeing developers from the tedium of writing boilerplate stored procedure code. The product was designed for use in Visual Basic 6.0, but can be used in any COM-compliant development environment. SpArk is priced at $150 for unlimited usage and deployment.
