Taxonomy, ontology and metadata management
TopQuadrant has launched Version 4.6 of TopBraid Suite, Web-based solutions designed to simplify the development and management of standards-based, model-driven solutions for enterprise taxonomy, ontology and metadata management, as well as reference data governance and data virtualization.
Introduced in Version 4.6 is the TopBraid Reference Data Manager (TopBraid RDM), which enhances governance of reference data storage and distribution with the addition of relevant and easily accessible metadata. The company says TopBraid RDM allows business users to make better informed decisions based on reference data by bringing consistency and accuracy across multiple systems.
TopQuadrant also reports new capabilities for the TopBraid Enterprise Vocabulary Network (TopBraid EVN) TopBraid Insight and the TopBraid Platform.
The company highlights the following new features of TopBraid EVN 4.6:
- improved user interface with navigation pages redesigned using tabs and more icons;
- enhanced collaboration, knowledge capture and change tracking, including multiple enhancements for importing vocabularies from spreadsheets; and
- search enhancements, such as the ability to search and browse for vocabularies based on their metadata.
