Data dictionary. Evolved.

A Solidatus data dictionary, much like business glossaries, is a core component of modern data management, essential for defining a consistent technical vocabulary for an organization. Due to the volume, complexity and rapidly evolving nature of the technology landscape, many organizations are unable to maintain a consistent understanding and lexicon throughout their technology estates.

Vendors, with their own proprietary terminology describing their technology, schema, metadata and format differences cause increased risk and cost, raising barriers to interoperability and understanding.

Solidatus is designed to make all aspects of data management faster by enabling organizations to quickly and easily gather, document and socialize data at truly enterprise scale.
Data dictionaries enable a consistent terminology across an organization, helping to ensure accuracy and integrity of communication. A modern data dictionary should enable centralized control with a collaborative, federated model for suggesting, agreeing and maintaining terms, definitions and data that supports their use. Dictionaries, glossaries, policies, standards and other taxonomies all provide an organization with a method to ensure internal and external alignment. Simplifying an all too complex and non-standardized domain.
