Modular Metamodel Template
- Feature Note
The next generation of available applications on the market wants to be as modular as possible! This approach aims to offer customizable semantics and a non-intrusive construction in order to make their reading and integration more fluide in your environment.
To know more about the subject, this article defines this new wave of software: Why Modular Productivity Softwares Are Only Just Beginning ?
With this shared conviction, we develop a data catalog that will allow you, freely, to completely personalize your datasets documentation layout and thus, help you progress step by step.
In this latest product release, we offer the possibility to redesign with a modular approach your properties construction.
Definitions associated with a data catalog
- Dataset: a collection of data, commonly corresponding to a database table.
- Category: a category brings together different datasets grouped together by a Zeenea administrator based on their business or technical goal.
- Processes: the activities that led to the creation of a specific dataset.
- Properties: a set of information giving context to a category, dataset or process.
Zeenea automatically captures and updates technical and operation metadata from an enterprise’s data sources in its data catalog.
Our tool also allows you to add, configure – at the hand of the data catalog’s administrator – and overlay information (information that can be mandatory or not) on Zeenea’s cataloged datasets. This additional information, we call them properties!
This contextual information is mainly referred to business and operational documentation.
Some examples of additional properties could be:
- a data’s sensitivity level
- how frequent a dataset is updated in Zeenea
- the business unit
Via this approach, we offer a simple and modular way to configure documentation templates according to the enterprise’s objectives and priorities
Our Dynamic Metamodel Diagram
Zeenea now allows you to easily visualize the types of objects that make up your custom metamodel, as well as their relationships using our new diagram!
Our dynamic metamodel design now allows you to view the details of each type of object – their sections and their properties – and updates automatically after each change.
