The release adds, “Today’s release offers several key enhancements to TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance (EDG) including: New highly interactive visualizations for connected assets, such as LineageGram™ to track data and business lineage for compliance and other requirements. Overall user experience design improvements, including enhanced search features that allow users to perform free text, semantic and faceted search over all their governed content. The results from the search can also be configured to display the content and style best suited to an organization’s specific needs. Once the item is found, users can share their knowledge about it, to say, for example, how and where they are using it. New and enhanced import capabilities make it even easier for end users to directly bring in data and metadata to be governed, without burdening IT.”
