erwin Data Governance provides an ISO 11179 based business glossary to capture, define, maintain and implement an enterprise business glossary of terminology, data definitions, code sets, domains, validation rules, etc.
Semantic and dataflow mapping:
Facilitates the drag and drop connection of design-layer metadata from business glossary through conceptual to logical and physical data models as well as data flow mappings between data stores and data elements.
Live metadata harvesting of data stores:
Connects directly to databases, Big Data and Cloud data sources which can then be documented and mapped in real-time over the Web using the Data Documenter and Data Mapper.
Graphical impact and lineage analysis:
Graphically view the inter-relationships between data elements to analyze semantic and/or dataflow lineage and better assess the impact of change.
Universal Data Model Harvesting:
Import and integrate other vendor’s current and legacy data models.
“High Fidelity” diagram visualization:
View graphical model diagrams in various formats (including IE, IDEF and UML).
Metadata search and browse capability:
Drill-down capabilities allow you to see textual metadata details to uncover definitions, data structures and more.
Model configurations and metadata lifecycle management:
Enables organizations to maintain multiple model configurations, automate model harvesting and manage versions of the model metadata.Read the full Data Sheet (PDF) for a more detailed list of features.
