Business Metadata

InfoLibrarian™ provides a rich set of tools for managing and publishing enterprise business metadata then classifying and mapping those definitions to existing data, applications and processes.
Business metadata management allows companies to capture documentation within a business glossary of terms. These terms are in turn mapped to the systems, applications and major process names to form a 50,000 foot view of technology environments from a business point of view.
