The following table describes each step in the B2C customers flow, and explains which steps usually need to be edited for your data.
If you need to make changes to the mastering flow beyond those described in this documentation, contact Support at [email protected] for assistance.
|Usually Requires Changes||Step||Description|
|Add Data||You verify that source data meets both general requirements and template-specific requirements. Then, you add source data.|
|Align to B2C Customer Data Model||You map input columns
to attributes in the supplied schema. If you add attributes to the unified schema, you will need to update the following steps, as described in the rows below, to ensure that these attributes appear in your final mastered entities:
||This transformation step ensures that each source record has a unique primary key across all
source datasets by adding a new primary key field:
Important: If records within the same source dataset have duplicate primary key values, the
If you mapped an empty placeholder column to the
|Prepare Data for Enrichment||This step transforms the data in the unified dataset to match the expected inputs to the phone number data quality service included in the mastering flow.|
|Enrich Phone||This step standardizes and validates phone number information. See Phone Number Enrichment.|
|Enrich Address||This step standardizes and validates address information, and enriches addresses with latitude, longitude, and detailed address information. See Address Standardization, Validation, and Geocoding.|
|Enrich First Name||This step identifies and adds common first name variations and nicknames, for use by the clustering model These values are not included in the final data product output. See First Name Enrichment.|
|Prepare for Clustering||This step transforms the data in the unified dataset to create the fields used by the
trained clustering model to identify similar and matching records.
The fields created as input to the model are prefixed with
|Apply Clustering Model||This step groups records that refer to the same entity into a cluster, using the trained model. See Features of B2C Customers.|
|Consolidate Records||This step applies rules to produce a single record, called the mastered entity record, that best represents a cluster. For most fields, these rules select the most common value from the clustered records.
Additionally, this step adds a Tamr ID (
If you added new attributes in the Schema Mapping step, add lines in the transformations to tell Tamr Cloud what value to set for each attribute when creating the mastered entity. See Modifying Record Consolidation Transformations.
|Configure Attributes||You configure how mastered entity attributes appear in Tamr Cloud and published datasets. If you added new attributes in the Schema Mapping step, add and map those attributes in this step to include them in your final mastered entity output. See Configuring Data Display.|
