About data tables

A customer 360 database is built using standard outputs of the Stitch process that provide a unified view of customer data, including customer profile and interaction records that are linked together by the Amperity ID, organized, merged, and ready for use in segmentation.

About the data model

The data model represents the “out-of-the-box” tables that are available to every tenant. (AmpIQ tables are available only to tenants that have added AmpIQ to Amperity and have completed the process of enabling predictive attributes.)

Important

This data model represents the starting point for all tenants. It is common for a tenant to have additional tables that support specific data requirements and workflows.

Data model diagram

The following diagram shows the data model for core tables in Amperity. Color coded sections identify which groups of tables are associated with customer profiles, interactions records, Stitch QA, and AmpIQ.

The core data model for Amperity.

There are four groups of tables in this diagram:

Group name

Description

Customer records

The color associated with the customer profile table group.

A customer profile is a collection of attributes that are associated with a single unique individual in the customer 360 database. The total number of customer profiles is equal to the total number of rows in the Customer 360 data table. This total correlates strongly, but not exactly, to the total number of Amperity IDs assigned to unique individuals in the same data set.

The Customer 360 table represents your primary set of customer profiles and is the most common starting point for building segments. Each customer profile is built using a combination of the Merged Customers, Customer Attributes, Unified Customer, and Unified Coalesced tables.

Interaction records

The color associated with the interaction records table group.

An interaction record is a row in a customer data table that contains information about customer behavior, such as purchases (items bought, items returned, costs of items, etc.) and preferences (brands, products, cart adds, etc.).

Interaction records rely on a series of tables: Transaction Attributes, Transaction Attributes Extended, Unified Itemized Transactions, Unified Transactions, and Unified Product Catalog.

Each Amperity ID in the Customer 360 table can be associated to many rows in the Unified Transactions table, and then each Amperity ID in the Unified Transactions can be associated to many rows in the Unified Itemized Transactions table. Each Amperity ID in the Customer 360 table is associated to one Amperity ID in the Transaction Attributes table.

Note

The Transaction Attributes table has an associated “extended” table that captures additional attributes when data sources provide to Amperity the data required to complete the calculations for the attributes. It exists as a separate table in the customer 360 database, but should be viewed as a subset of transactions attributes data.

Stitch results

The color associated with the Stitch results table group.

Stitch QA is a process that monitors the quality of Stitch results. Stitch QA has two components: a database and a set of queries. The results of these queries are analyzed to help identify values that should be labeled or blocklisted and discover situations where the results of the Stitch process require tuning to match your tenant’s data set.

Stitch QA activities rely on a series of tables: Unified Coalesced, Unified Scores, Detailed Examples, Unified Preprocessed Raw, Unified Changes Clusters, and Unified Changes PKS. These tables are the basis for the Stitch QA process ; the use of any specific table will vary from tenant to tenant. Together they provide visibility into how Amperity grouped (or did not group) individual customer records to a single Amperity ID.

AmpIQ

The color associated with the AmpIQ table group.

AmpIQ enables customer-centric marketing campaigns. Use segment insights to build high-value segments. Use those segments to add audiences to campaigns. Build campaigns that send those audiences to any combination of downstream marketing workflows.

AmpIQ tables are enabled for users of AmpIQ and are the results of the configuration and tuning of Amperity for predictive analytics. These tables rely on the Merged Customers, Unified Itemized Transactions, and Unified Transactions tables for predictions, but there is not a 1-to-1 or 1-to-many relationship between those three tables and AmpIQ tables. The Predicted CLV Attributes table contains one row per Amperity ID, whereas the Predicted Affinity table contains many rows per Amperity ID.

The Campaign Recipients table contains a history of all campaigns that have been sent from Amperity. This table is updated on a recurring basis and may be used like any other table in your customer 360 database.

Data model indicators

This diagram uses the following indicators to highlight relationships between tables and to call out fields that are primary keys, establish links between tables, or associate this table back to a domain table in the Sources page:

Name

Description

1:1, 1:many

An indicator that this column has a 1:1 or 1:many relationship with another table.

Indicates that this table has a 1:1 or 1:many relationship with another table. For most tables, this relationship is based on the Amperity ID.

Many:1

An indicator that this column has a many:1 relationship with another table.

Indicates that this table has a many:1 relationship with another table. For most tables, this relationship is based on the Amperity ID.

Primary key

An indicator that this column is a primary key.

Indicates this column is the primary key for this table.

Linking key

An indicator that this column is a linking key.

Indicates this column links customer records, such as those associated with a customer key or a foreign key that were defined as part of a feed or custom domain table from the Sources page.

Data source

An indicator that this column is associated to the original data source.

Indicates this column is associated to an original customer data source in the Sources page, with the value of this field being the name of that data source.

All Opted In Emails

The All Opted In Emails table contains all opted-in email addresses (and associated Amperity IDs). This table is built from the Email Opt Status table, after which it can be extended to support brands, region, email program, and language preferences.

Warning

The All Opted In Emails table is not unique by Amperity ID and should not be used within the Segment Editor.

The All Opted In Emails table contains the same columns as the Email Opt Status table. Unlike the Email Opt Status table, the All Opted In Emails table should be made available to the Segment Editor. This ensures that the email attribute in this table is available to campaigns. (Choose the email attribute from the All Opted In Emails table from the Edit Attributes menu.)

Campaign Recipients

The Campaign Recipients table contains a list of Amperity IDs associated with any campaign that was sent from Amperity. Each campaign is associated with the segment used to generate the list of recipients, the control and treatment groups (including sub-audiences) used for the campaign, its launch date, and all destinations to which the campaign was sent.

The Campaign Recipients table is generated by Amperity, and then made available as a standard database table. Use this table to access campaign attributes, perform historical campaign analysis, and to build segments and multi-stage campaigns that use the results of previous campaigns.

Important

Data in the Campaign Recipients table is updated after the next database run. If your database is configured to run once per day then data in the Campaign Recipients table will be available on a 1-day delayed rolling basis.

Note

See Campaign Recipients for more information about how this table is built and maintained within Amperity.

The Campaign Recipients table contains the following columns:

String

A match category is a classifier that is applied by Amperity to an individual record-pair within a cluster of record-pairs. The match category is the result of this classification.

Match Category

Description

Exact

Amperity has the highest confidence that these records represent the same person because all profile data exactly matches.

Excellent

Amperity has near perfect confidence that these records belong to the same person, despite select types of profile data not matching.

High

Using deductive reasoning, Amperity has very high confidence that these records match, despite some profile data not matching.

Moderate

Amperity has moderate confidence that these records match, due to weak or fuzzy matches between highly unique customer attributes (email, phone, address).

Weak

Amperity lacks confidence, but if asked to guess, Amperity would assert these records do belong to the same individual, because they match on non-unique customer attributes (name, state, zip code).

No conflict

Amperity has high confidence that these records do NOT match, because core profile data is in conflict.

Also in: Unified Scores

Phone A

Phone B

String

The phone number that is associated with an individual customer record. A customer record may be associated with multiple phone numbers.

Postal A

Postal B

String

The zip code or postal code that is associated with the location of an individual customer record.

Score

Float

A score contains a value from 0.0 to 5.0 that represents the combined score assigned to the record pair by Stitch. There are two components of the score: the score itself, and then its strength.

The record pair score correlates to the match category, which is a classifier that is applied by Amperity to individual record pairs. The record pair score corresponds to the classification: 5 for exact matches, 4 for excellent matches, 3 for high matches, 2 for moderate matches, 1 for weak matches, and 0 for no matches.

The record pair strength represents the strength of the record pair score. It is a two digit number. For example: .31 is a lower strength and .93 is a very high strength.

Note

Scores are shown for records that end up in the same cluster, including any scores that are below threshold. Scores are not shown for records that do not end up in the same cluster.

Note

In the Email Engagement Attributes table, each Amperity ID should only have one email address, per brand.

Tip

The Email Engagement Attributes table pulls the email engagement data, for each Amperity ID, from the Email Engagement Summary table using the email associated with it in the Merged Customers table.

Note

The Email Engagement Attributes table can be selected as a source in the Segment Editor to segment customers based on their email behavior.

Fiscal Calendar

A fiscal calendar is a yearly accounting period that aligns the weeks and months in a calendar year with holidays and a brand’s marketing goals to align the business for an entire calendar year. A common fiscal calendar used by brands is the 4-5-4 fiscal calendar.

A 4-5-4 calendar divides years into months using a 4 weeks - 5 weeks - 4 weeks pattern. Each week starts on a Sunday and ends on a Saturday. Each quarter has the same number of days. A 4-5-4 calendar can be useful for comparing like days for sales reporting purposes.

The Fiscal Calendar table is generated by Amperity when fiscal calendar semantic tags are applied to source data tables.

The Fiscal Calendar table contains the following columns:

Update DT

Opt-in status tables

Standard output tables are available that make available your customer’s preferences for email and phone communications from your brand. Use these preferences to determine when and how your brand can use email and SMS to communicate with your customers.

  1. Use the Email Opt Status table when your brand communicates with your customers using their email address.

  2. Use the SMS Opt Status table when your brand communicates with your customers using their phone number.

Email Opt Status

The Email Opt Status table contains a row for each unique combination of email address, brand, region, and email program.

This table is generated when email-opt/ semantic tags are applied to data sources that contain data that describes your customer’s consent status and gives insight into which customers are available to be used as part of an email-based marketing campaign.

Important

Amperity is not the source of truth for email consent status. Email consent status can change quickly, including between the time of this table’s most recent update and the time at which your brand wants to send your customers an email as part of a campaign.

The source of truth for consent status exists downstream from Amperity, often directly within the marketing tool or application that you are using to configure the email campaign, such as Cordial, Braze, Klaviyo, or Attentive.

Use this table to filter audiences in Amperity to include customers who have consented to receiving email messages, and then build a step within the downstream marketing tool that verifies consent status immediately prior to sending an email.

Note

The Email Opt Status table represents every email address for which you have provided customer consent data to Amperity. There should be only one consent status by combination of email address, brand, region, or email program.

If you have multiple brands, regions or email programs, it’s possible for the same email address to have more than one customer consent status.

If a brand, region, or email program does not exist, there should be only one customer consent status for each unique email address.

The Email Opt Status table contains the following columns:

Semantic Name

Region

String

The region to which the opt-in status applies.

SMS Opt Status

The SMS Opt Status table contains a row for each unique combination of phone number, brand, region, and SMS program.

This table is generated when sms-opt/ semantic tags are applied to data sources that contain data that describes your customer’s consent status and gives insight into which customers are available to be used as part of an SMS-based marketing campaign.

Important

Amperity is not the source of truth for SMS consent status. SMS consent status can change quickly, including between the time of this table’s most recent update and the time at which your brand wants to send your customers an SMS message as part of a campaign.

The source of truth for consent status exists downstream from Amperity, often directly within the marketing tool or application that you are using to configure the SMS campaign, such as Cordial, Braze, Klaviyo, or Attentive.

Use this table to filter audiences in Amperity to include customers who have consented to receiving SMS messages, and then build a step within the downstream marketing tool that verifies consent status immediately prior to sending an SMS message.

Note

The SMS Opt Status table represents every phone number for which you have provided customer consent data to Amperity. There should be only one consent status by combination of phone number, brand, region, or SMS program.

If you have multiple brands, regions or SMS programs, it’s possible for the same phone number to have more than one customer consent status.

Match Category

String

A match category is a classifier that is applied by Amperity to an individual record-pair within a cluster of record-pairs. The match category is the result of this classification.

Match Category

Description

Exact

Amperity has the highest confidence that these records represent the same person because all profile data exactly matches.

Excellent

Amperity has near perfect confidence that these records belong to the same person, despite select types of profile data not matching.

High

Using deductive reasoning, Amperity has very high confidence that these records match, despite some profile data not matching.

Moderate

Amperity has moderate confidence that these records match, due to weak or fuzzy matches between highly unique customer attributes (email, phone, address).

Weak

Amperity lacks confidence, but if asked to guess, Amperity would assert these records do belong to the same individual, because they match on non-unique customer attributes (name, state, zip code).

No conflict

Amperity has high confidence that these records do NOT match, because core profile data is in conflict.

Match Type

String

The type of score being applied. Possible values are as follows: “scored”, “scored_transitive”, and “trivial_duplicate”.

PK1

String

PK2

String

Score

Float

A score contains a value from 0.0 to 5.0 that represents the combined score assigned to the record pair by Stitch. There are two components of the score: the score itself, and then its strength.

The record pair score correlates to the match category, which is a classifier that is applied by Amperity to individual record pairs. The record pair score corresponds to the classification: 5 for exact matches, 4 for excellent matches, 3 for high matches, 2 for moderate matches, 1 for weak matches, and 0 for no matches.

The record pair strength represents the strength of the record pair score. It is a two digit number. For example: .31 is a lower strength and .93 is a very high strength.

The Transaction Attributes Extended table contains additional attributes for customer flags, customer orders, data differences, time period rollups, and RFM scores, many of which are represented by duration (days, months, years, lifetime), order position (first, second, last), frequency, and revenue.

Extended transaction attributes—customer flags, customer orders, date differences, time period rollups, and RFM—are also calculated by Amperity based on data sources that contain interaction records that were tagged with transactions and itemized transaction semantics.

Extended transaction attributes are presented as a single table (with many columns), including an Amperity ID, and fit into the following categories:

Customer flags

Each record has a set of flags that indicate if a customer has purchased, the number of brand interactions, the number of brand channels, and if that customer is an early repeat purchaser.

Column Name

Data type

PII

Description

Amperity ID

String

An Amperity ID is a patented unique identifier that is assigned to clusters of customer records. A single Amperity ID represents a single individual. Unlike other systems, the Amperity ID is reassessed every day for the most comprehensive view of your customers.

Early Repeat Purchaser

Boolean

Early repeat purchaser is a flag that indicates if a customer made a repeat purchase within the previous 90 days.

Tip

Use the Early Repeat Purchaser attribute as a leading indicator for overall conversion rate of one-time buyers to repeat customers, even when it does not capture the total number of one-time buyers who have returned to purchase again.

Also in: Transaction Attributes

Multi Purchase Brand

Boolean

A flag that indicates if a customer has interacted with more than one brand.

This column is calculated from the Purchase Brand column in the Unified Transactions table, which is created when the purchase-brand semantic tag is applied to interaction records that contain transactions data.

Also in: Transaction Attributes

Multi Purchase Channel

Boolean

Multi-purchase channel is a flag that indicates if a customer has purchased from more than one channel.

This column is calculated from the Purchase Channel column in the Unified Transactions table, which is created when the purchase-channel semantic tag is applied to interaction records that contain transactions data.

Also in: Transaction Attributes

One And Done

Boolean

One and done is a flag that indicates if a customer has made only one purchase.

Important

Amperity uses the range of data that is provided to it to identify one-time buyers. For example, if Amperity is provided data for the years 2015-2022, purchases made in 2014 are not used to identify one-time buyers.

Also in: Transaction Attributes

RFM

Amperity calculates RFM scores against transactions that occurred within the last 12 months.

Each of the recency (R), frequency (F), and monetary (M) scores are represented by a number between 0 and 9. The final RFM score is a concatenation of the individual scores: recency first, then frequency, monetary last. The final RFM score is a number between 0 and 999.

Note

RFM uses approximate calculations to optimize the performance of the Transaction Attributes Extended table.

Column Name

Data type

PII

Description

L12M RFM Score

Integer

The RFM score for the customer is based on transactions that occurred within the last 12 months. The RFM score is represented as an integer between “111” and “101010”. This is a concatenated score that uses each of the individual recency, frequency, and monetary scores. The order is recency, then frequency, and then monetary.

For example, you can build an audience that contains your top 20% customers for recency, your top 30% customers for frequency, and your top 10% customers for monetary by setting the L12M RFM Score attribute to “9810” (or “9” for recency, “8” for frequency, and then “10” for monetary).

Find approximate RFM frequency for middle 30 percent.

L12M Recency

Integer

L12M Recency is a score that sorts customers by how recently they purchased during the previous 12 months.

Each RFM score is split into ten percentile groups. The lowest percentile is 1 and the highest percentile is 10. Each percentile represents 10% of the customers who belong to that segment.

  • 10 represents the 90-100th percentile and the customers who have the highest recency, frequency, or monetary scores.

  • 9 represents the 80-90th percentile

  • 8 represents the 70-80th percentile

  • 7 represents the 60-70th percentile

  • 6 represents the 50-60th percentile

  • 5 represents the 40-50th percentile

  • 4 represents the 30-40th percentile

  • 3 represents the 20-30th percentile

  • 2 represents the 10-20th percentile

  • 1 represents the 0-10th percentile and the customers who have the lowest recency, frequency, or monetary scores.

Tip

Combine percentiles to build larger groups of customers. For example 9 and 10 together represent the “top 20%” while 8, 9, and 10 represent the “top 30%”.

L12M Frequency

Integer

L12M Frequency is a score that sorts customers by purchase frequency during the previous 12 months.

Each RFM score is split into ten percentile groups. The lowest percentile is 1 and the highest percentile is 10. Each percentile represents 10% of the customers who belong to that segment.

  • 10 represents the 90-100th percentile and the customers who have the highest recency, frequency, or monetary scores.

  • 9 represents the 80-90th percentile

  • 8 represents the 70-80th percentile

  • 7 represents the 60-70th percentile

  • 6 represents the 50-60th percentile

  • 5 represents the 40-50th percentile

  • 4 represents the 30-40th percentile

  • 3 represents the 20-30th percentile

  • 2 represents the 10-20th percentile

  • 1 represents the 0-10th percentile and the customers who have the lowest recency, frequency, or monetary scores.

Tip

Combine percentiles to build larger groups of customers. For example 9 and 10 together represent the “top 20%” while 8, 9, and 10 represent the “top 30%”.

L12M Monetary

Integer

L12M Monetary is a score that sorts customers by spend amount during the previous 12 months.

Each RFM score is split into ten percentile groups. The lowest percentile is 1 and the highest percentile is 10. Each percentile represents 10% of the customers who belong to that segment.

  • 10 represents the 90-100th percentile and the customers who have the highest recency, frequency, or monetary scores.

  • 9 represents the 80-90th percentile

  • 8 represents the 70-80th percentile

  • 7 represents the 60-70th percentile

  • 6 represents the 50-60th percentile

  • 5 represents the 40-50th percentile

  • 4 represents the 30-40th percentile

  • 3 represents the 20-30th percentile

  • 2 represents the 10-20th percentile

  • 1 represents the 0-10th percentile and the customers who have the lowest recency, frequency, or monetary scores.

Tip

Combine percentiles to build larger groups of customers. For example 9 and 10 together represent the “top 20%” while 8, 9, and 10 represent the “top 30%”.

CK

String

The ck semantic tag may be applied to a column that contains pre-existing, tenant-specific customer IDs. When customer keys are applied, Amperity compares them to the Amperity ID as part of the deduplication process.

Tip

What happens to customer keys in the Unified Coalesced table?

  • Records may have NULL customer keys.

  • There may be only one customer key per data source.

  • There may be multiple customer keys per Amperity ID. This is because customer keys may also be tagged as foreign keys.

Also in: Unified Customer

Component ID

Integer

An identifier that represents a set of records that are transitively connected with a score above threshold as an outcome of blocking and initial scoring. Records that share a component ID, but have different Amperity IDs, were split during hierarchical comparison.

Tip

Records with different component_id values may show as having been blocked together. This can occur when a connecting record pair was removed because it scored below the pairwise comparison threshold.

Also in: Unified Preprocessed Raw

Country

String

The country that is associated with the location of an individual customer record.

Values in this column depend on fields that are tagged with the Country semantic.

Important

The country field is added to the Unified Coalesced table when fields are tagged with the country profile semantic.

Note

This value must be greater than or equal to 0 for purchases, but less than or equal to 0 for returns or cancellations.

Caution

This value should match the customer’s definition of an order-level discount. For example, some customers associate this value to order value, whereas others associate this value to a subtotal. Use domain SQL to update this field for the desired calculation.

Also in: Unified Transactions

Order ID

String

This column is input to AmpIQ predictive modeling.

An order ID is the unique identifier for the order and links together all of the items that were part of the same transaction. When an item has been returned or when an order has been cancelled, the order ID is the unique identifier for the original order, including the returned or cancelled items.

This field is often the primary key and associated with the pk semantic tag.

Note

For data that contains itemized transactions, where a single transaction includes more than one of the same item, the order ID will appear more than once.

Note

The order ID should never change, even when an item in the order is returned or cancelled.

Caution

If order IDs are recycled and/or are otherwise not guaranteed to be unique over time, the unique identifier for the order must be updated to be a combination of the order ID and the date on which the order occurred. This must be done using domain SQL similar to: CONCAT(order_id, order_date).

Values in this column depend on fields that are tagged with the txn-item/order-id semantic. The combination of Order ID and Product ID must be unique for each row in this table.

This column is used to calculate the following transaction attributes:

Product Catalogs

String

Optional

Product catalog fields are added to the Unified Itemized Transactions table in two ways, depending on the approach your tenant used for defining your product catalog:

  1. When data sources use txn-item/ product catalog semantic tags.

  2. When product catalog fields are joined from the Unified Product Catalog table. Refer to the section in this topic about the columns that are available to product catalogs.

Important

The names of the columns that are available for product catalogs are identical. For example: Product Brand, Product Category, and Product Gender. The difference is the outcome of the approach your tenant used to define your product catalog within Amperity.

Product ID

String

This column is input to AmpIQ predictive modeling.

The unique identifier for a product.

A stock keeping unit (SKU) is an identifier that captures all of the unique details of any individual product, including specific attributes that differentiate by color, size, material, and so on.

For example, a shirt with the same color and material, but with three different sizes would be represented by three unique SKUs and would also be represented by three unique product IDs.

Note

For data that contains itemized transactions, where a single transaction includes more than one of the same product, the product ID will appear more than once.

Caution

Every customer has their own definition for SKUs and product IDs. Be sure to understand this definition before applying semantic tags to fields with product IDs to ensure they accurately reflect the customer’s definition.

Values in this column depend on fields that are tagged with the txn-item/product-id semantic. The combination of Order ID and Product ID must be unique for each row in this table; product quantity is counted using Item Quantity.

Important

This column is recommended when using a product catalog. A product catalog is a requirement for certain predictive features of AmpIQ, such as for product affinity and audience sizes.

Custom attributes

Varies

You may extend the Unified Itemized Transactions table to define custom attributes for use with a product catalog.

Important

This column is recommended when using a product catalog. A product catalog is a requirement for certain predictive features of AmpIQ, such as for product affinity and audience sizes.

Add custom attributes to the Unified Itemized Transactions table by extending it to add columns that support using a product catalog. Custom attributes should include the columns to which product catalog semantic tags were applied, but may include additional custom attributes that are unique to your tenant and your brands.

Important

The Unified Product Catalog table represents the taxonomy for your products and brands. Attributes are added to the Unified Product Catalog table when pc/ semantic tags are applied to your data sources. All pc/ semantic tags are optional. Use the ones that best define the shape of your product catalog and best describe the individual items within it. The product ID is used as an input to AmpIQ predictive modeling.

Unified Preprocessed Raw

The Unified Preprocessed Raw table is an output of Stitch. Use this table as part of Stitch QA to view data exactly how values were used by Stitch after preprocessing and blocklisting. This table contains one row for each trivial duplicate. Only the semantics used by Stitch are shown. Semantic values represent pre-processing values and/or bad values that were removed (and replaced by NULL).

Tip

Because there is only one row per trivial duplicate, join this table on the Unified Coalesced table for ongoing usage. For example:

SELECT *
FROM Unified_Coalesced uc
JOIN Unified_Preprocessed_Raw up
ON uc.rep_ds=up.datasource AND uc.rep_pk=up.pk

The Unified Preprocessed Raw table contains the following columns:

Score

Float

A score contains a value from 0.0 to 5.0 that represents the combined score assigned to the record pair by Stitch. There are two components of the score: the score itself, and then its strength.

The record pair score correlates to the match category, which is a classifier that is applied by Amperity to individual record pairs. The record pair score corresponds to the classification: 5 for exact matches, 4 for excellent matches, 3 for high matches, 2 for moderate matches, 1 for weak matches, and 0 for no matches.

The record pair strength represents the strength of the record pair score. It is a two digit number. For example: .31 is a lower strength and .93 is a very high strength.

Note

Scores are shown for records that end up in the same cluster, including any scores that are below threshold. Scores are not shown for records that do not end up in the same cluster.

Also in: Detailed Examples

Match Category

String

A match category is a classifier that is applied by Amperity to an individual record-pair within a cluster of record-pairs. The match category is the result of this classification.

Match Category

Description

Exact

Amperity has the highest confidence that these records represent the same person because all profile data exactly matches.

Excellent

Amperity has near perfect confidence that these records belong to the same person, despite select types of profile data not matching.

High

Using deductive reasoning, Amperity has very high confidence that these records match, despite some profile data not matching.

Moderate

Amperity has moderate confidence that these records match, due to weak or fuzzy matches between highly unique customer attributes (email, phone, address).

Weak

Amperity lacks confidence, but if asked to guess, Amperity would assert these records do belong to the same individual, because they match on non-unique customer attributes (name, state, zip code).

No conflict

Amperity has high confidence that these records do NOT match, because core profile data is in conflict.

Also in: Detailed Examples

Match Type

String

The type of score being applied. Possible values are as follows: “scored”, “scored_transitive”, and “trivial_duplicate”.

A match is assigned “scored_transitive” when that match was not identified during blocking. For example: three records (A, B, and C). If records A and B and records B and C were identified as matching during blocking, all three records will end up in the same group of records for pairwise comparison. Records A and C have a transitive connection.

Unified Transactions

The Unified Transactions table contains one row for each unique transaction record, with each order ID associated to an Amperity ID.

The following diagram shows an example of the Unified Transactions table (click to view a larger diagram):

An example of the Unified Transactions data table.

Note

Currency must be consistent across all orders from the same data source.

Customer ID

String

A custom semantic tag that is applied to interaction records to identify a field that is used in downstream processes to associate interaction records to the Amperity ID.

A customer ID may appear once for each order ID in the transactions table. When a foreign key is not present, the customer ID is used to join interaction records (transactions and itemized transactions) to tables that contain the Amperity ID.

Note

A namespaced foreign key should be used along with a customer ID. When a foreign key is added to transactions data it:

  • Must match a foreign key in a table that is output by Stitch

  • Must be well-distributed across the data source (a high percentage of values must not be 0)

  • May contain a NULL value

  • Must be unique for each order ID in the Unified Transactions table.

Note

The order ID should never change, even when an item in the order is returned or cancelled.

Caution

If order IDs are recycled and/or are otherwise not guaranteed to be unique over time, the unique identifier for the order must be updated to be a combination of the order ID and the date on which the order occurred. This must be done using domain SQL similar to: CONCAT(order_id, order_date).
