Kensho Integrates Link AI with S&P Cross-Reference Capabilities to Improve Client Data Management

Subscribe to our newsletter

Kensho Technologies, an S&P Global company, has integrated its Link AI solution with S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Business Entity Cross Reference Service (BECRS) to streamline client data management.

By combining Kensho Link, a machine learning service that maps entities in a user’s database to unique ID numbers from S&P Global’s company database, and BECRS datasets that provide cross-reference capabilities for millions of public and private entities, clients can connect more to data and produce higher quality downstream decision-making insights.

This is achieved by using an API or user interface that allows Kensho Link users to enrich data using third-party identifiers from the BECRS dataset; disambiguate data to make data connections more efficient; and take advantage of an integrated Data-as-a-Service solution that centralises entity data and improves the efficiency with which clients upload and manage their data.

Lance Risi, global product director of cross reference services at S&P Global Market Intelligence, says: “As S&P continues to encourage its clients to enrich their data with S&P content, combining Kensho Link with BECRS and its global identifiers from around the world will enable clients to streamline the integration process easier and faster.”
