Abstract: Record linkage is a task of identifying data from large datasets across different data sources. Although record linkage approach has been applied in many areas, there is limited discussion on the literature that gives an overview on recent development that addressed record linkage in the scope of the organisational goals. This paper is classified according to the recent development on record linkage as an approach to drive the understanding of the dependencies of organisational data in relation to the organisational goals. We observed recent literature based on this classification to identify recent development on record linkage. The results show that there is no study in evaluating record linkage in the scope of organisational data that relate to the organisational goals. The contribution of this paper will serve as a first step to develop the dependency relationship between organisational data and organisational goals.
