Free Webinar: Data Governance for the Connected Enterprise: TopBraid EDG in Action

Too often data governance solutions are limited in scope and can’t connect all of your data sources. Standalone tools can create yet another data or metadata silo. TopBraid EDG uses a non-proprietary, graph-standards-based, model-driven approach to representing the meaning of data, which we call semantic information management. This approach is flexible and interoperable and can adapt to changes in the data, metadata and business needs of the organization.

Who Should Attend: Enterprise Architects, Solution Architects, Data Architects, Chief Data Officers and Chief Information Officers, Data Governance Project and Program Managers, Data Stewards, Data Quality Managers, IT Implementers, Business Intelligence Program Managers and Data Warehousing Program Managers

In this webinar, Irene Polikoff and Jack Spivak will present a standards-based approach to data governance that supports the diversity and rate of change that define today’s complex data ecosystems. They will demonstrate capabilities in TopBraid EDG that let you create and connect assets, including the following:

  • Data asset models
  • Datatypes assets
  • Glossaries
  • Enterprise asset models

In the short example we show how easy it is to track lineage for specific line items reported such as “Total Interest Expense” on the Federal Reserve Board’s FR Y-9C form to the data elements it is derived from – by just following the connections.
