Glossary management and data discovery tools for IT and business users
Build glossaries of terms in taxonomies with synonyms, acronyms and relationships to describe the organisation’s data assets. Publish approved standards for these terms to the wider organisation to improve clarity/precision of language. Also prioritise terms, ﬂagging information regarding regulatory requirements.
The user experience is highly configurable, with roles created and changed to suit the needs and processes of your organization. Self-service access with flexible search mechanisms make it easy to find data assets and understand them in a business context for faster analysis and decision-making.
Intelligent Data Lineage and Impact Analysis
Understand, harvest and document the origin of data in BI reports and the data warehouse with lineage reports. See real-time impact diagrams linking core data elements to the business glossary and databases that store them, processes that use and transform them, and applications that access and manipulate them to better plan and manage change.
