    The InfoLibrarian™ Object Modeler
    The Object Modeler allows you to identify anything that you want documented and define it. Additionally you can organize it the way you want. Think of it as having the ability to define templates for the metadata you want to manage in your environment. Build your own meta-model with no code or repository modifications. For example, you can create objects that represent:

    • Business Glossaries.
    • Concepts and Terms.
    • Hierarchies.
    • Taxonomies.
    • Valid value lists.
    • Policies for data governance.
    • Data quality metrics.
    • Hardware inventory.
    • Business processes.
    • Key performance indicators.
    • Technical processes in business terms.
    • Applications and components.
    • Subject Areas and Categories (Taxonomy).
    • Define new objects for custom scans loaders and templates.
    • Create unlimited custom properties.
    • Define complex objects.

    One scenario would be to create an object and its properties in the Object Modeler™, then use the InfoLibrarian™ Excel loader template or import wizards to populate the object in the repostitory, giving you the power to essentially build your own custom meta-model.

  • Categorizing and Organizing Metadata

    InfoLibrarian™ enables you to easily capture, define and map your business metadata. Automatically displaying and categorizing it in the portal with terminology that is already familiar to your users.

    Business Views and Categories

    You can define or import business terms and rules from various other tools. With a few clicks, business terms can be mapped to technical metadata using the terms mapping tool. You can also define subject areas and map those to the business terms that will be auto-generated in the portal.

    Mapping and Visual Lineage Diagrams

    The built-in InfoLibrarian Visual Mapper™ tool allows you to associate objects or defines hierarchies and categories of objects, build subject areas, and link documents. The portal automatically graphically materializes the subject areas you define, and provides the users with the ability to drill through the hierarchies to the finest level of detail. Subject areas are presented in the portal graphically.

  • Managing Business Vocabularies

    InfoLibrarian™ enables you to define the vocabulary and rules for documenting the semantics of business vocabularies, business facts, and business rules in order to enable a complete business representation made by and for business people.

    Managing Thesauri

    Thesauri for information retrieval are typically constructed by information specialists, and have their own unique vocabulary defining different kinds of terms and relationships: Terms are the basic semantic units for conveying concepts. They are usually single-word nouns, since nouns are the most concrete part of speech. Verbs can be converted to nouns – "cleans" to "cleaning", "reads" to "reading", and so on. Adjectives and adverbs, however, seldom convey any meaning useful for indexing. When a term is ambiguous, a “scope note” can be added to ensure consistency, and give direction on how to interpret the term. Not every term needs a scope note, but their presence is of considerable help in using a thesaurus correctly and reaching a correct understanding of the given field of knowledge. Term relationships are links between terms. These relationships can be divided into three types: hierarchical, equivalency or associative. InfoLibrarian™ provides a set of rich features for thesauri management capabilities.

    Managing Business Taxonomies

    InfoLibrarian™ enables you build on your business metadata and develop and maintain enterprise business taxonomies.

    Companies develop classification schemes or taxonomies, upload and store metadata, then using our portals, publish rich information for their users to search and navigate. InfoLibrarian™ can transform information that is complex, chaotic and hard to access, into a resource that gives precise and relevant answers quickly. This transformation has a positive impact on many areas of any business.
