Business metadata, such as definitions, derivations and rules, are an important responsibility of a data stewardship function. As always, it is all about working with the resources available: how data stewards collect and manage this business context efficiently as part of their work. In this session, we present an evaluation of Collibra's Business Semantics Glossary as a platform to support the data stewardship function. With its semantic capabilities, it offers various new possibilities for a data governance strategy.
