SAP BusinessObjects Information Steward

The SAP BusinessObjects Information Steward is an application for
specialized departments and the IT department alike to ensure
company-wide profiling, manage meta data, and check data quality

With the SAP BusinessObjects Information Steward, SAP has merged the products Business Objects Data Insight, Meta Data Management, and Cleansing Package Builder from Data Services.

The data insight component of the Information Steward allows for the analysis of data structures and contents from various different heterogeneous data sources as well as for high data quality assurance thanks to data quality scorecards.

Meta Data Management allows you to define a business glossary and to allocate to technical objects professional definitions and terms, in order to ensure common understanding throughout the company. Furthermore, the influence and origin analysis of characteristics and key figures ensures better transparency with regard to the time and funds invested in changes and new definitions.

The Cleansing Package Builder enables the definition of flash-based web-surface validation and standardization rules that can be used by IT directly during the process of technical data flow design.
