What’s new in our Business Glossary and Data Catalog solution?

One of the main advantages of moving to SaaS is that we can roll out new features to you with ease and with little or no work on your side. Take a look at some of the recent features we added and check back regularly to see more.

Business term synonyms

Allows users to create synonymous values to business terms without losing the golden truth of the main term. These synonyms are displayed in searches and filters and redirect the user to the main term when selected. This can be particularly useful such as during transitional periods after mergers.

  • Added December 2021

Technical data mappings

Document how data flows between your data sources. It captures data transformations so that you can get an overview of how data moves between parts of your data catalog. It can help you be compliant with regulatory standards that require data transformation tracking. Included in the Professional plan or higher.

  • Added December 2021

Business term suggestions

Use our AI technologies to save time and effort by getting automated suggestions of mappings between Business Terms and Data Catalog, which you can accept or reject based on a probability score. Speed up your work for preparing business data lineage with complete control over which lineage connections get created. Included in the Basic plan or higher.

Advanced custom properties

Customize Accurity based on whatever data governance methodology you use, with additional custom property types for advanced users: date, numerical code, relation between any two object types. You can also set a custom property to be mandatory and set default values for newly created objects. Included in the Professional plan or higher.

  • Added November 2021

REST API integration and documentation

Enables third-party applications in your company IT ecosystem to connect to Accurity and use Accurity as a single point of truth for managing data, and also, via the API, remotely find, read, modify, or delete elements of Accurity. Included in the Professional plan or higher.

  • Added October 2021

Tagging

Tagging gives you the ability to assign any object, of any type, within Accurity a tag. This allows any user to create a fully custom layer of categorization and group data by whatever methodology they wish to use. You can display entire groups of objects regardless of their type in a single view. Objects can be sorted by or searched for using any of these tags.

  • Added October 2021

Process lineage

Process lineage allows you to map business processes and each of their individual process steps onto Data Assets, Entities and Attributes (BDM), and Business Terms. Process lineage comes with our Data-driven Business Process Optimization solution which is an optional extension to our Model-driven DWH Development or the Business Glossary & Data Catalog solutions.

  • Added October 2021

Data assets

Define hierarchal Data Assets and link data sets to them at the highest level of your Data Catalog. Data Assets can be a system or application output file, database, document, or web page, or whatever you want to recognize as a group of data sets. This enables you to get to know your data via a representation of IT landscapes, systems, databases, applications, etc.

  • Added August 2021

Requirements

Enables you to capture your initial data requirements and link them to your Business Data Model. This allows you to see how requirements are covered in your IT architecture and how they are incorporated into your BDM. The entire process can easily be tracked in one place. Included in the Professional plan or higher.

  • Added July 2021

Relation types
