Business Glossary Integration
Effective in version 10.1.1, Analyst tool business glossaries are fully integrated with Enterprise Information Catalog.
You can perform the following tasks with business glossary assets:
- View business glossary assets in the catalog.
You can search for and view the full details for a business term, category, or policy in Enterprise Information Catalog. When you view the details for a business term, Enterprise Information Catalog also displays the glossary assets, technical assets, and other assets, such as Metadata Manager objects, that the term is related to.
When you view a business glossary asset in the catalog, you can open the asset in the Analyst tool business glossary for further analysis.
- Associate an asset with a business term.
You can associate a business term with a technical asset to make an asset easier to understand and identify in the catalog. For example, you associate business term "Movie Details" with a relational table named "mv_dt." Enterprise Information Catalog displays the term "Movie Details" next to the asset name in the search results, in the Asset Details view, and optionally, in the lineage and impact diagram.
When you associate a term with an asset, Enterprise Information Catalog provides intelligent recommendations for the association based on data domain discovery.

Informatica 10.1.1 Enterprise Information Catalog User Guide.
