Adaptive Takes Another Leap Forward with Release of Metadata Manager Version 8.0

Latest release in company’s suite of metadata management products enhances capabilities for current and future clients


Data governance solution provider Adaptive has announced the release of Metadata Manager Version 8.0, the latest and most comprehensive update to its suite of metadata management products.

With 20 years of experience in the data management sector and having been named an industry leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant Report, Adaptive has always been at the forefront of data governance. With this latest release, Adaptive continues to improve on the solutions it offers.

Offering a modernized and enhanced user interface for a more positive user experience, Version 8.0 incorporates Google Material Design guidelines to provide an intuitive and rich user interface experience. It also offers a new rich text editor for easy inclusion of images, links and other formatting capabilities.

Adaptive has completely replaced its graphics engine with two state-of-the-art Javascript-based engines and these data-driven graphics enable diagrams to be generated with dynamic and interactive data visualizations that can be captured and printed with ease. The new diagram capabilities allow users to not only visualize metadata and its relationships effectively, but also provide further interactive features like searching, highlighting routes, collapsing and expanding branches, and overlaying different properties of objects on the diagrams.

A powerful new addition in 8.0 is context sensitive help. Available on every screen, it empowers users to help themselves by providing online assistance, reducing the need to search the documentation. With this function, users not only learn why to do something, but also how to do something. Context sensitive help provides immediate assistance and information to users about a specific topic or issue they are experiencing, greatly increasing their productivity.

Introduced with 8.0, any end user can now easily create a personalized dashboard homepage, while administrators can also create dashboards for all users of the application or for all users sharing the same role. This feature allows greater accountability and accessibility across an organization by enhancing the alignment of metadata for effective data governance. Users can work more efficiently by being presented with organized, clear, actionable tasks and up-to-date information as soon as they sign in to the Adaptive repository.

These additions to Adaptive’s Metadata Manager product mean current and future clients can more efficiently and effectively manage their metadata to achieve regulatory compliance and gain growth-driven business insights.

With this release Adaptive has not only modernized and improved the usability of the product for customers but also managed to provide rich functionality to enable more effective enterprise metadata management solutions.
