TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance

The first data governance solution to use true knowledge graph technology based on W3C standard RDF graphs

An Agile, Connected, Knowledge-informed Data Governance Solution

TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance™ (TopBraid EDG™) is an enterprise knowledge graph for data governance. More specifically, TopBraid EDG is a modular set of different types of graphs expressing knowledge about the things needed for managing and governing your data.

Using standards-based knowledge graph technologies, TopBraid EDG supports integrated data governance across numbers and types of data assets and governance needs – because connections are important.

With EDG, you can choose data governance packages to support a comprehensive and staged approach to data governance.

Best-Fit Data Governance

We recognize that in ramping up a data governance program, different organizations may have differing priorities and starting points. With TopBraid EDG, you can start incrementally.

For example, you may start using EDG for business glossaries or reference data or metadata management only. After starting your data governance program with any of those focuses, you can always extend your scope to governing other assets when you are ready to do so.

To support this comprehensive but staged approach, TopBraid EDG provides focused packages, available as an initial configuration of EDG.

Each package can be used on its own or with the other packages toward your targeted scope of information governance.

Several add-on modules are available to further extend the use of TopBraid EDG.
