Informatica Enterprise Data Catalog (EDC) provides business and IT users with powerful semantic search and dynamic facets to filter search results, data lineage, profiling statistics, 360-degree relationship views, data similarity recommendations, and an integrated business glossary. This enables IT users to be more productive and business users to be able to be full partners in the management and use of data. You can now easily and efficiently manage enterprise data assets to maximize their value throughout the company. Business users can quickly find data and easily manage the lifecycle of business terms, definitions, reference data, and more.
The Intermediate level constitutes of many 'how-to' documents, whitepapers and videos that will help you understand EDC installation, configuration, resource management, monitoring, profiling, similarity discovery and many such concepts.
