Active metadata is information about metadata that augments the value of metadata. Examples of active metadata are: SLA violations, execution information, data quality scores etc. Incorporating active metadata, significantly increases the trust in the information that is being provided and accelerates collaboration and decision making between teams within the enterprise. Orion’s EIIG provides standard connectors to load active metadata in either json, csv or xml formats.

Orion’s EIIG was recently highlighted by Gartner as a cool vendor in Graph Technologies. EIIG leverages Graph technology and Machine Learning to lead in the Active Metadata space by automatically building a Data Catalog with a search capability and organizing metadata for quick analysis, collaboration, process/change management and consumption. This clarifies meanings and allows for trust to be built and propagated across the data supply chain. These are all unique capabilities that the competition is challenged to deliver against, while Orion has been implementing these in near real-time for many years. Our EIIG tool and expertise allows us to firmly lead in this space.
