Can be added to any EDG package to allow a tailored approach to information governance

Business Glossaries

Business Glossaries are available as an add-on Asset Collection Type with the Vocabulary Management and Reference Data Management packages. Business Glossaries are also included as one of the Asset Collection Types in the Metadata Management package, and as a simple, starting package by itself.


Enumerations are suitable for storing multiple, relatively small and simple codesets in a single asset collection. An example may be gender codes or age group codes.  Reference datasets.are intended for larger and richer sets of codes, 

Data Graphs and Custom Collections

Data governance today has to address all of the ever increasing types of data and the diverse contexts in which it is created and used. A key design goal for TopBraid EDG is to support the full diversity of data governance needs. Though it comes with hundreds of built-in data asset types, the “Data Graphs” add-on module provides additional flexibility and capability to support this diversity. It consists of two capabilities:

  1. It allows users to create Knowledge Graphs containing any information – based on ontologies of their choice. These types of collections are called Data Graphs in EDG and require no application development to start using them.
  2. it also allows the creation of new asset collection types – with some application development required using existing and creating new features for new collections. New collection types are typically also based on user defined ontologies. For example, you may choose to create a “Master Data” collection type or “Infrastructure Assets” collection type.


TopBraid Explorer

TopBraid Explorer lets a broader community of data stakeholders explore information governed by TopBraid EDG. TopBraid EDG users can publish asset information for use in Explorer. TopBraid Explorer users can search across all published information, view it and can create comments for data stewards. TopBraid Explorer is installed on a separate server for scalable access by people and APIs.

TopBraid Tagger and AutoClassifier™

TopBraid Tagger and AutoClassifier™ links controlled vocabulary terms to content. Content resources can be tagged manually or auto-tagged using Tagger’s AutoClassifier capabilities. Users can then review the results of auto-tagging. This module adds to the EDG-VM package additional assets collection types: Content Tag Sets and Content Corpora. The auto-classification is expected to be installed on a separate server.

TopBraid Data Platform

The TopBraid Data Platform provides high availability TopBraid servers for continuous operation of business functions by replicating data across a cluster of servers.
