Audited and versioned workflow
Solidatus redefines ‘data governance’, being the only data management solution that is as comfortable looking forward in time as it is looking back. Solidatus provides a flexible, configurable, workflow taking inspiration from the industry-leading control and workflow tools Git and Jira. Designed to be operationally simple with a full audit trail for compliance and full versioning to provide that ‘single version of the truth’ at any point in time. Solidatus supports:
- Scenarios analysis (Historic vs current vs future target state)
- Delta analysis (Regulatory proof: by default and by design)
- Full or partial roll back (Mistakes happen, it’s how quickly you can fix them that matters)
Enterprise scale and performance
Solidatus’ elegant browser-based UI is performance-tuned to cope with the ever-growing data estates of enterprise clients, both in terms of volume as well as cadence of change.
Solidatus can visualize hundreds of thousands of data points and flows, while remaining operationally performant and functional. Solidatus has been designed for Enterprise and developed to N, N models, N catalogs, N attributes, N relationships, N properties, N rules, N Versions.
Flexible, extendable, open
Solidatus is unique in its unopinionated, non-prescriptive design, with a simple open meta model that allows users to model any scenario or use cases to suit their organizational needs, not to fit into a vendor’s view of the world. It is flexible enough to support innovation, but structured enough to allow elegance. Solidatus provides a uniquely fully open and flexible API, that allows clients the full development capabilities enjoyed by the Solidatus development team.
Collaborative data management
Solidatus has been engineered from the first line of code with collaboration in mind. Taking inspiration from distributed source control technologies and work practices, Solidatus allows data management to be distributed, federated and social. Allowing subject matter experts with vast quantities of explicit and tacit knowledge to discover, document, validate and disseminate information and knowledge.
Multiple deployment options
Solidatus clients have total freedom of choice over deployment methodologies: On-premises, public or private cloud, or hosted by Solidatus. Solidatus’ light -weight containers can be run and managed on virtual machines using Docker and Docker Compose, or deployed to a container platform such as:
- Cloud – GCP, AZURE, AWS, Solidatus, etc
Advanced rules engine
Solidatus allows users to define and run logical rules-based analytics over its logical directed graph. Whether to identify technical or business issues or demonstrate compliance, common uses include:
- Data quality issues, accuracy, completeness, etc
- Personal Identifiable Information (PII) identification and classification
- Toxic combinations of access
- Data dashboards
Powerful search and query language
Solidatus believes transparency creates understanding: Solidatus makes it easy for all users to find the data they are looking for and the context that surrounds it. The powerful search toolset allows users to find the data they need quickly and simply.
Solidatus’ logical query language harnesses a concise, simple and straightforward predicate-logic syntax enabling complex searching to be performed. Search results can be used to generate display rules, filters and views, creating multiple business lenses over the metagraph to produce publishable and sharable digital dashboards. Whether a point-in-time or a dynamic, always up-to-date view users can quickly obtain total insight into their data.
One of the key tenets of Solidatus is acceleration and reduction of manual processes that are bottlenecks to achieving operational efficiency. Whether in the discovery, ingesting, classifying, cataloging, linking or socializing phase, Solidatus implements as many functional efficiencies as suitable for a particular scenario. Solidatus doesn’t implement Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Machine Learning (ML) unless it proves an accurate accelerant to a manual pain point. The Solidatus Auto-Mapper and Auto-Assignment incorporate Fuzzy Logic, Heuristic Scanning and ML to accelerate identified manual bottlenecks.
Tag, classify, catalog, link
The Solidatus metamodel provides users with the ability to specify and assign as many business, technical or other tags or properties as required to both the data structures such as systems, tables, fields, reports, etc, as data pipes.
These tags or properties do not need to be specified in advance and can be centrally managed at scale. Both data sources, sinks and pipes can be infinitely tagged, enabling the capture of technical transformation logic such as ETL, SQL, pseudo code as well as business information including criticality, purpose, quality, costs, SLAs ownership. Each tag can be externally linked to other accessible data sources, building a knowledge graph with context and supporting data.
Real-time and run time notifications
Solidatus is an operational metadata management system at its core. It provides planned change, real time impact analysis of change, and governance and control. Designed to be utilized by all personas and at all levels of an organization from C-suite, management, data stewards, analysts, to developers. Solidatus is as useful and flexible as Excel, as visually simple as Visio, with the collaborative control of Git. Configurable notification keeps all users updated both in Solution and email-based.
Solidatus is unique in the way it enables an organization to quickly build a corporate map of their data flows by sharing and delegating relevant portions to key data experts. It has been shown to be many times faster than anything currently in the market. Not only can you build your models rapidly, now you can also share them in an interactive read-only view with anyone in your organization:
- Modeled concepts and networks can be visualized allowing their relationships to be examined
- Discover the hidden information in the metadata structure of the organization by slicing and dicing models, create knowledge out of things you didn’t know you knew
- Harness the power of semantic graphs at a fraction of the cost to build of traditional tooling
