RALEIGH, NC – July 28, 2015 – TopQuadrant™, a leading enterprise metadata and semantic data integration company, today announced the release of version 5.0 of TopBraid Suite, a collection of web-based solutions that simplify the development and management of standardsbased, model-driven solutions for enterprise taxonomy, ontology and metadata management, reference data governance, and data virtualization.

“It continues to be our goal to improve ways for users to harness the full potential of their data,” said Irene Polikoff, CEO and co-founder of TopQuadrant. “This latest release of 5.0 includes an exciting new feature, AutoClassifier. While our TopBraid Enterprise Vocabulary Net (EVN) Tagger has let users manually tag content with concepts from their vocabularies for several years, AutoClassifier completely automates that process.”

As part of the autoclassification process, once a user runs AutoClassifier, an interactive new report on the taggings and the standard TopBraid EVN Tagger interface both let you review and edit the proposed tags in a working copy before making these part of the production tag set. This lets you put autogenerated tags through the same workflow that you would with manually assigned tags, making it easier for a collaborative workgroup to maintain quality using governance procedures.

In addition to autoclassification, the latest release includes new capabilities for TopBraid Enterprise Vocabulary Net (TopBraid EVN), TopBraid Reference Data Manager (RDM), TopBraid Insight, and the TopBraid platform, including improvements in internationalization and a new component for increasing system availability in enterprise environments, TopBraid DataCache.

New features of TopBraid EVN and TopBraid RDM 5.0 include:

  • The addition of Crosswalks, a new type of vocabulary used to create mappings between EVN taxonomies or RDM data sets.
  • The ability for business users to configure event-driven notifications such as when a vocabulary status has changed or a task got assigned.
  • Improved display of ontology classes and properties.
  • Improvements to the data import capabilities offering users even greater configurability and flexibility for bringing their information into EVN and RDM.
  • The addition of a new Teamworks role manager to easily manage roles for several EVN and RDM data assets at one time.
