You can document an existing data store, like a database, which is already imported as a model in Talend Metadata Manager. You can publish the resulting documented data stores to the enterprise.

When modeling, you may:
  • Model schema, tables and columns and physical properties of each.
  • Add business names and descriptions to objects, like tables and columns.
  • Organize and view objects graphically using diagrams and subject areas.
  • Annotate diagrams.
  • Model relationships including cardinality, join conditions, verb phrases, to better understand interrelated objects.

In addition, these data stores change over time. Talend Metadata Manager protects an investment in documenting data stores by supporting the synchronization of existing physical data models to new data store versions automatically.
