Managing a Business Glossary
Learn how to create a business glossary and work with it further.
Business glossaries are managed by the data stewards or the data governance teams of an organization. The data stewards work across teams to define and approve the hierarchy of the terms. In some organizations, such teams follow a thorough process of submissions, reviews, votes, approvals, change management, and so on, to manage the glossary terms.
