With an emphasis on data structures and terminologies, Adaptive specializes in guiding enterprises through the process of placing appropriate meta tags on their data attribution to effectively comprehend the full impact of risk, security, data privacy and compliance-related analytics and governance. “This, in turn, gives an organization the ability to trace where their data is stored, where it starts, where and how it moves, who is using it and where it is going, making it reliable to be used in analytics. We call this data lineage analytics” adds Goins. Also, with Adaptive Metadata Manager, enterprises can create a traceability link between their business metadata and technical metadata, to better understand the flow of data, the ownership/ stewardship behind the data use and applicable transformations and how the data is being protected and leveraged in the most optimal manner.
As the name indicates, Adaptive readily adapts to an enterprise’s technical landscape or ecosystem, as the firm works with many different technologies to complement the existing processes, without replacing anything. The firm also offers a unique integrated metadata and semantic approach through structural frameworks known as “ontologies.”
People are the key dimension to anything you do in life and we take pride in working with an extremely talented team
The Adaptive Business Glossary Manager (BGM) is one such solution that offers a framework to assist enterprises with defining and communicating consistent business vocabulary and aligning glossary terms to standard language definitions. By directly referencing entities that represent the corporate hierarchy, processes, and data, BGM provides traceability and a “semantic perspective” of organizational execution and contributes to improved data governance while substantially reducing the compliance risk.
BGM also leverages such standards as FIBO (Financial Information Business Ontology), which serves as a standardized reference model for the language of business concepts used in contracts across the financial services industry. By aligning its local terminology and data with the FIBO ontological standard model, BGM ensures that the compilation of the data needed for regulatory reporting, internal risk, compliance and analytics is correct. To further their goal of introducing technological advances that connect the metadata layer to the real data/ instance data, Adaptive provides the capability to enhance real-time analytics and processing.
Equipped with a world-class professional services team that specializes in accelerating implementations, the firm plans to complete a series of acquisitions this year as a part of their endeavor to become the premier platform for managing data. “People are the key dimension to anything you do in life and we take pride in working with an extremely talented team,” expresses Goins. Also, with a focus on reinforcing their product portfolio, the firm plans to continuously build on their offerings for master data management, data quality, data profiling and enabling capabilities focused data management and governance.
