Enterprise Edition Features Planned for 2017


 

Data Quality

The Data Quality features included in the Enterprise Edition will enable you to document data quality rules (functional and technical details) including valid value lists as well as managing data quality issue resolution.
Data Quality Rules can be connected to Definitions.  New workflows are available for the approval of data quality rules as well as the resolution of data quality issues.

With the IDataHub Integration Suite, many automations can be added:

  • reference data (valid value lists) can be kept in synch with your data systems
  • data quality rules can be executed and validated on your data systems
  • issues identified can be automatically reported back through the data quality issue resolution workflow.

Key Features

• Ensure that your validation rules and quality checks are documented and connected with your business glossary.
• These rules are reviewed and approved by stewards. Provide a workflow for reporting and resolving data quality issues that involve your data governance structures.
• Integrate with your data systems using the IDataHub to exercise the quality rules and push any exceptions in to the workflow for resolving quality issues.

IDataHub Integration Suite

The IDataHub is a separately licensed product that is designed to enhance the features of the Enterprise Edition by providing integrations between your Data Cookbook account and your data systems within your organizations.

Installed on premise, the IDataHub is an integration platform.  This suite includes components to read your Data Quality Rules from the Data Cookbook and test them against your data systems. The results can be sent back to the Data Cookbook to be handled by the workflow for resolution of data quality issues.  This suite also includes components to synchronize technical metadata about your data systems (including the schema or model) with the Extended Data Systems in the Data Cookbook.  Changes or issues in the synchronization are handled in the Data Cookbook with an impact resolution workflow.
