RALEIGH, NC – April 18, 2016 – TopQuadrant™, a leading Enterprise Information Management company, today announced the release of TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance™ (TopBraid EDG). A modular, extendable, standards-based solution, TopBraid EDG provides integrated data governance across the ever-growing types of data assets and governance needs for enterprises.

Data governance is a quality control discipline for assessing, managing, using, improving, monitoring, maintaining and protecting organizational information. According to Irene Polikoff, CEO and cofounder of TopQuadrant, “As organizations start to realize the importance of their data assets, they are often faced with legacy data governance practices and systems that hamper them from unlocking the value from that data. TopBraid EDG is an agile, comprehensive response to today’s complex data governance needs designed to help enterprises maximize the value of their data by addressing any legacy barriers and future challenges.”

With TopBraid EDG enterprises benefit from a modular, extendable solution that provides integrated data governance over multiple types of data assets, including business glossaries, reference data, crosswalks, ontologies, taxonomies, data, policy and lineage models and other business, technical and operational metadata. By enabling enterprises to govern connected data assets and providing end user capabilities that help to preserve the meaning of data, TopBraid EDG provides multiple benefits that reduce costs and increase quality and efficiency:

  • Helps organizations use data more intelligently
