Entity & Hierarchy
Achieve global consistency with our organizational data foundation
By connecting your commercial entities to our unifying data structure and leveraging D&B’s D-U-N-S® Number and global hierarchies, you’ll have an enterprise-wide common view of entities and their legal relationships. Now, what may have appeared to be disparate records are disambiguated and reconciled under a connected family tree, enabling you to understand and manage relationships.
CORPORATE HIERARCHIES AND LINKAGE
The universal standard for business identification
Dun & Bradstreet D-U-N-S Number is a unique global business identification system that identifies, validates and links to more than 280 million businesses worldwide. Only D&B assigns the D-U-N-S Number ensuring accuracy, timeliness and cross-border consistency of information.
Discover the value of interconnected relationships
D&B global corporate hierarchies and linkage enable you to see and maintain a family tree and hierarchical structure for your commercial relationships. And because corporate relationships are constantly changing due to ongoing mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations and consolidations, D&B makes daily updates to corporate hierarchies. This brings transparency to business relationships and enriches your view, enabling you to mitigate risk and find new growth opportunities.
