What is address standardization?
Standardization is the process of converting multiple known values to a single predetermined format. For example, “USA”, “US”, and “United States of America” can each be standardized to “United States”.
The same behaviour can also be applied to states. For example, “TX” can be standardized to “Texas”. Standardization is a crucial piece of functionality for organizations running reports on country and state data, or relying on duplicate rules where these field values are compared.
