From the Blog on deduplication
Trying a new path
Deduplication between two different digital solutions is not overly complex. And yet, it is complex due to humans and organisations.
And then what?
Assumptions. We all make them. What are yours? What steps, conversations, and answers to ‘and then what?’ do you need to have today?
What if our approach would be to have an inclusion bias? How many more people could we help? Great term, let’s make it a reality.
Ideals, Trade Offs, and Compromise
Trade offs haunt me. Working with systems and people is all about trade offs. There is no perfect answer, especially in the midst of a crisis.
Remember the Human
The biggest requests I hear for sharing personal data are deduplication, referrals, and connections with financial service providers (FSPs).
The Power of Yes/No
Yes/No can help us with inclusion, exclusion and duplication without actually sharing the information. We do this already and we can improve.
What if we centralise something else?
When we centralise information for deduplication we run into challenges. First, what do we centralise. Second, who ‘governs’ that which is centralised.
Your System will not be perfect
No matter what model used, it will not be perfect. it must be accompanied by a robust system enabling people to complain, update their information, etc.
