About this Webinar

Aired live Dec 10, 2020


A business glossary is a collection of terms important to a business. It can capture valid definitions of values and business rules for data, sharing this key knowledge across the organization. Business glossary can be used to link IT assets such as data elements to terms that describe the data; thereby, connecting business and IT and enhancing organizational collaboration and productivity.

A well defined and operationalized business glossary saves time for employees and increases consistency, standardization and data integrity for the entire enterprise. However, the process for connecting data sources to business terms presents a challenge for many organizations. With hundreds of data sources and many thousands of data elements, it is a large undertaking.
