TopBraid EDG–Business Glossaries
Create and manage common vocabularies of business terms to ensure clear communication and to improve understanding of your data
Define business terms and link them to other enterprise assets – to connect business with IT
Glossaries are designed to improve understanding of data’s context and usage. Glossary terms not only have descriptions of their meaning, but they also define business context of use and can be linked to the underlying technical metadata to provide a direct association between business terms and data sources and data elements.
To enable connection of business and technical metadata, business glossaries are included in TopBraid EDG–Metadata Management. Alternatively, business glossaries can be used on their own – as a starting point of your data governance journey, or combined with TopBraid EDG–Reference Data Management.
Glossary terms can be categorized in a way that is relevant to your organization. Multiple glossaries can be developed, interlinked, searched and explored. Valid definitions of values and business rules can then be managed and made available across the organization.
