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 organization. Many businesses for a variety of reasons have been unable to maintain a consistent lexicon throughout their organization. Tribal dialects form within segregated and siloed departments and business units, causing increased risk and cost to inter- and extra-organizational communication.

Business glossaries enable a consistent terminology across an organization, helping to ensure accuracy and integrity of communication. A modern business glossary should enable centralized 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 organization to ensure organizational alignment and direction.

Solidatus business glossaries are fully integrated, feature-rich, intuitively designed and machine learning (ML) assisted. Designed to help organizations rapidly identify, document and share their common taxonomies in order to communicate consistently and thus exploit their most valuable asset – their data.

Organizational 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.
