The Gold Standard in Metadata Management

& Data Lineage 




The MetaCenter® Platform is the leading enterprise software platform to enable business and IT to collaborate in governing an organization's information assets.  MetaCenter® allows business and IT staff to self service questions about their data and how it flows through the business and classify how it should be used.  Leverage that knowledge to put your data to optimal best use. 


The platform’s capabilities are made possible by industry's only loosely coupled repository architecture. Instead of building a single normalized model, MetaCenter® builds independent models of each technology it scans using its ActiveLinx® Adaptors. The ActiveLinx® Adaptors are engineered to connect to a wide variety of metadata and technology sources and collect a model of the metadata in each.    This approach reduces the total cost of ownership over competing solutions by up to 80%.


The process is fully automated and can easily be validated. The MetaCenter platform also provides best in class extensibility to enable organizations to customize the platform as needed. No programming is required. Users rapidly amass details about enterprise systems, databases, data integration routines, reports, and many other information assets across the organization. Piece-by-piece a complete record of what data is created and consumed across the business comes to light.
