Why Don’t You Have An Automated Business Glossary Yet?
The BI & Analytics team simply doesn't have the bandwidth, the time, or the financial resources to build a business glossary, let alone maintain it.
There are different understandings of what each term means across the organization. The IT and Business teams often operate independently, and there are always frequent changes and updates.
Who can keep up?
There is a case of, “it’s not my job,” going around.
Who is going to take ownership of this project? Is it BI? If so, this will take their focus away from other important projects for months. Is it the professional services team? If so, that'll cost the company an arm and leg.
What Happens When You Automate a Business Glossary?
The issues with bandwidth, complexity, and ownership go out the window. Instead of manually searching and gathering all of the metadata, instead of manually entering all of the metadata terms into an excel which will most likely become outdated the minute you hit save, and instead of paying professional services to take on all of this work which would normally take months, the business glossary is generated automatically. In seconds.

Simplify Chaos Post M&A
When one company acquires another, countless resources are dedicated to merging or consolidating reporting systems. But with so many different systems in place and so many different terms and descriptions with different meanings within those systems, the merger can be a huge, never-ending challenge. The automated business glossary simplifies this by automatically uploading all metadata from multiple reporting tools to the glossary where the presentation layer terms can then be compared, linked, analyzed, and even discussed.
