IBM InfoSphere Metadata Workbench is a comprehensive metadata solution, unifying data sources, ETL processes, business logic, data quality rules, data models, Business Intelligence reports, and business terminology into a single repository.
By managing the enterprise Information-Assets, IBM Metadata Workbench:
- Increases the understanding and trust in the information by allowing end-to-end visual lineage of the information flow including where the information came from and how it was derived.
- Provides better business understanding of the information as it adds business context and meaning for IT assets.
- Enables easy 'Search & Find' capabilities on information assets, as it classifies all assets in a single repository, and offers advanced reporting services on its classified items.
- Provides better Data Governance by enabling risk analysis on the data and dependency management.
- Increases business and IT collaboration and communications, by sharing a single metadata repository among business and technical users.
