What Is a Business Registry?

A business registry collects key demographic information about the businesses that exist within your jurisdiction from across multiple government agencies. Gaining a deep understanding of how businesses are affiliated with one another can be quite challenging. With business registries built on the IBM InfoSphere MDM platform, not only can you create a single list of the registered businesses within your jurisdiction, you can also leverage known relationships between companies to better understand ownership and affiliations between businesses.

Business registries can help you to:

  • Create a centralized location to view sanctions, permits, violations and tax statuses for businesses in your jurisdiction
  • View ownership and subsidiary relationships between the businesses in your data sets
  • Leverage the most complete and up-to-date view of each business to track location and contact information changes
