Business Glossary

Solidatus has been meticulously designed to be intuitively simple. It helps to rapidly build a complete inventory of technical assets and record sets through automation, collaboration and knowledge-sharing within one centrally managed solution.

Business Glossary. Evolved.

A Solidatus Business Glossary is a core component of modern data management, essential for defining a consistent vocabulary for an organisation. Many businesses for a variety of reasons have been unable to maintain a consistent lexicon throughout their organisation. Tribal dialects form within segregated and siloed departments and business units, causing increased risk and cost to inter- and extra-organisational communication.

Business glossaries enable a consistent terminology across an organisation, helping to ensure accuracy and integrity of communication. A modern business glossary should enable centralised control with a collaborative, federated model for suggesting, agreeing as well as maintaining terms, definitions and data that supports their use.  Catalogs, glossaries, dictionaries, policies, standards and other taxonomies all enable an organisation to ensure organisational alignment and direction.

Solidatus is designed to make all aspects of data management faster by enabling organisations to quickly and easily gather, document and socialise data at truly enterprise scale.


Solidatus is the next generation, industry-leading, Business Glossary

Solidatus Business Glossaries are fully integrated, feature-rich, intuitively designed and machine learning (ML) assisted. Designed to help organisations rapidly identify, document and share their common taxonomies in order to communicate consistently and thus exploit their most valuable asset – their data. Solidatus enables business glossaries to be tagged and linked seamlessly with data lineage models and asset inventories creating a complete end-to-end map of all data held, its interaction with language, policy and standards.

Organisational impacts of a business glossary used in conjunction with data lineage are far more significant than when used in isolation. A business glossary provides the what is, while the lineage provides the where, who and why – the context that gives meaning to metadata.

The Solidatus Business Glossary is an evolutionary step forward. Solidatus listens, and has learned from business glossaries that have come before. Taking the most useful and requested features and integrating them into an operational framework.  Utilising Solidatus’ simple, flexible, extendable UI/UX and our unique temporal/bi-temporal, versioned property graph technology to bring a new level of power and control to organisations.

Going beyond the power of advanced search to include a logical query language to be able to analyse glossaries and their interactions with organisational processes and data. Whether to find data assets, identify data quality issues or compliance problems, Solidatus puts the power into every user’s hands.
