New open metadata management capabilities are being added to the DMX-h data integration software from Synscort. This information came to us from Database Trends and Applications in their article, “Syncsort Adds Metadata Management Capabilities to its Platform.”

This new feature along with its seamless integration with Cloudera Navigator will make big data governance easier. “We want to make sure no matter what Hadoop-based metadata management tool users are using, they can get the information that they need about where their data came from so that the linage and tracking is taken care of,” said Paige Roberts, Product Manager at Syncsort.

DMX-h provides organizations with a single interface for accessing and integrating all enterprise data, including IBM z mainframes, and the flexibility to use the metadata repository that best meets their needs, on premises and in the cloud.

New capabilities allow Syncsort to extend metadata management by publishing DMX-h metadata, including data flow definitions and lineage tracking information, in an open format that can be consumed by and integrated with any metadata repository.
