0056 Asset Managers
The AssetManager classification represents a technology that manages metadata about assets and may also provide services to manage and/or govern the assets themselves (or at least track such actions). Data catalogs and other types of metadata catalogs are examples of asset managers. For example, Amundsen, Marquez and Apache Atlas are examples of data catalogs. An Egeria deployment using a Metadata Server and one or more Integration Daemons can also be enabled as an asset manager.
The UserProfileManager classification describes a system that manages user profile information - such as a company directory.
The UserAccessManager classification describes a user directory such as LDAP.
A MasterDataManager classification describes a server that manages the rationalization of master data stored in many systems.
