    Your data speaks a language, we have always understood it; with Spectrum Metadata Insights, now you can too!

    The Metadata Insights module is Spectrum's take on platform-wide metadata management. It defines the building blocks which allows users to gain more context about the data, presenting simplified and relevant insights that help both the data stewards and business users to make better data decisions.

    Data Discovery
    Data Discovery provides you with the ability to discover information assets across your organization and create an information catalog by semantically classifying your data. You can interact with this catalog using an intuitive UI which allows you to perform complex drill downs on your data over various relevant dimensions.
    This helps you have a better understanding about how your data assets are organized and related to each other.

    Business Glossary
    The Business Glossary provides a common place for defining and managing entities that the business use case demands. The glossary ensures that there is a common taxonomy that is used across the organization and builds a case for reusability and seamless collaboration between different stakeholders and implementation activities.

    The Modeling application allows for creation of a business view of the user's data. As part of this suite, we now provide you with smart suggestions while mapping logical models to the physical data assets. This makes the complex mapping process really easy, because a simple click of a button presents you with relevant choices of mapping sets for an entity calculated on the basis of semantic classification and name matching algorithms.

    The Profiling application helps you understand the quality or the health of your data. This new version of the application not only allows you drill down on various quality aspects of your data, but it now gives you suggestions on how you can remediate the quality risks. The profile reports now indicate where the system detects possibility of data rectification, selecting which the user is presented with actions that could be taken.
