Business Glossary

A collection of business terms and definitions that creates a common language for interpreting data throughout an organization.

Added Perspectives
A business glossary provides the environment for capturing the authoritative definitions of business terms and data element concepts. The recent generations of business glossary tools incorporate collaboration around workflows where business representatives can share their definitions and other significant aspects, expectations, and rules associated with the business term or data element. The collaborative environment facilitates discussion, agreement, and approval of definitions among those with domain expertise. The business glossary also highlights when the same term has multiple meanings in different business contexts, or when similar terms have the same definition.

A business glossary is used by an individual to check out the meaning of specific metrics that a company is standardized on.
