Metadata Management

Lets both business users and IT discover, understand, and manage key information assets that drive critical business decisions.

Anzo lets both data stewards and business analysts manage concepts, relationships, vocabularies, taxonomies, and thesauri by tracking metadata elements' approval and usage life cycles,. This solution promotes reuse via semantic/conceptual search, and allows you to capture arbitrary extended attributes about any metadata element. Anzo also lets you operationalize your metadata by using it to directly drive forms, visualizations, analytics, and data-integration processes.
