Business Glossary

Speak one language in your company

In the D-QUANTUM Business Glossary, the entire business knowledge of a company, such as terms, business objects,
key figures, reports, etc., is gathered in a central location, defined and brought into a uniform context. The terminologies are categorised and assigned to the responsible departments/persons.

Clear responsibilities for data elements

Consistent use of the data definition throughout the company

Structured and central knowledge

Business Glossary

Business key figures, definitions, responsibilities

Every company has different divisions that use the data differently. This becomes problematic when one and the same business data object, e.g. a key figure, is described or interpreted completely differently. This scope for interpretation leads to discrepancies, confusion and inconsistencies. In most cases, it is not clearly defined who is responsible for individual data objects.

The solution is the D-QUANTUM Business Glossary. Here, the entire business knowledge of a company, such as terms, business objects, key figures, reports, etc., is gathered in a central location, defined and brought into a uniform context. The terminologies are categorised and assigned to the responsible departments/persons. Responsibilities can thereby also be used for quality assurance and as a basis for software-supported information and coordination processes.

This creates a significantly higher level of data understanding and trust. Data transparency in the company is increased, enabling users to make faster and more informed (business) decisions.

D-QUANTUM provides answers to your questions

around Data Management

What data is available in my company and how is it used?

Information about the data inventory is processed in the Business Glossary and structured in a subject-specific way. Detailed data descriptions provide insights into the respective context of use of the data.

What are the advantages of structuring my data in a subject-specific way?

Via the data hierarchy, data consumers can use an exploratory approach to find relevant data. For example, in a marketing campaign, data on private customers can be obtained collectively via a summary business object.

What is the impact of changes to my data within the data landscape?

In the business glossary, relations can be set between the entries for business attributes and key figures. The effects of changes in data can be traced via a visualised data flow. If, for example, a change in the calculation logic of a key figure is planned, the business lineage can be used to analyse output variables of the affected key figure (impact analysis).


You cannot immediately see who is responsible for which data record in the company?

In the D-QUANTUM Business Glossary, responsibilities are assigned to the corresponding data, by means of an ownership model and management, and can be easily traced. This increases data quality and transparency in the company, synergies are created and can be used for the benefit of the company.
