Business Context, Collaboration and Consistency for Smart Data Governance
CONNECT makes database tools smart by giving data on-the-fly business context and collaboration. This empowers all users in the organization and puts them in control.
By attaching your company's business terms and definitions to diverse data assets, you can:
- Avoid information obscurity
- Better utilize a greater amount of all the data available
- Improve compliance standards and regulations
Overcome the Challenge of Data Sprawl, Make Good Business Decisions More Easily, Keep Auditors Happy
The continuous, accelerating growth of diverse data coming in to your company is old news. Data management professionals and business data consumers are seeking a solution that can turn this challenge into an opportunity, without needing to replace existing technologies.
Turn Users Into Experts
Start by identifying critical data elements, business data elements and regulatory data elements and getting a clear understanding of their sources, interactions, and dependencies. With CONNECT, any authorized user can locate and make better use of more data while sticking to business policies. CONNECT integrates business definitions with data management tools, allowing you to create a single, searchable registry of all available data sources. We call this the Enterprise Information Map and it will help you develop applications up to 10 times faster.
Collaborate Over Data
When you have identified your organization's data elements, you will start to see where common data sets, terms, and definitions exist. In a larger organization running 300 data models, you could easily find 350,000 data elements – a lot to manage. But once you get to Know Your Data, you are likely to find 200 data elements that are used frequently across most areas of the organization.
CONNECT uses integrated collaboration features to help you and your users understand the reality of your data. You can view, store, and centrally manage a single source of managed business definitions in an extensible business glossary.
Smart Tools Make Organizations Work Better
Having a clear picture of your data sources and critical data elements makes it far easier to protect your data. In addition, knowing who's using your data and through what systems it has passed makes it easier to meet business standards and industry regulations. This will significantly reduce your risk of non-compliance.
CONNECT promotes user adoption of important standards and policies by taking those compliance binders off the shelf and integrating key business terms and definitions with business systems. CONNECT works alongside many existing technologies seamlessly to help you bring new value to past investments.
CONNECT is a core component of the Embarcadero Data Management Platform, a suite of finely engineered, tried and trusted products whose users span database administrators, data modelers, data governance professionals, and application developers.
