Egeria Road Map and Destination

Egeria is a large project with many different activities adding content to the project. This page provides an overview of the aims of the project and a reflection of where we are today.

Figure 1 shows the three layers of capability that Egeria is aiming for.

Although some progress has been made on all layers, they do build on one another. So, not surprisingly, most of the work has been focused on establishing the frameworks, connector APIs and other services to provide the developer platform.

In recent months, and going into 2020, our focus is shifting to the integration platform as we add connector implementations for popular third party technologies and expand out the user interfaces (UIs).

The support for the governance solutions will then naturally follow along.

The governance solutions themselves sit naturally along side specific metadata and governance solutions available in the market today. Egeria is focused on filling in the gaps to support individuals that are setting up and running an open metadata ecosystem and wish to take advantage of the enterprise perspective it beings.

Figure 2 steps into a little more detail and expands out the types of functions found in each layer:

Figure 3 shows an overview of the status of the functions. Green means that there is function that is either released or technical preview. Orange means there is work going on and red means it is planned but not started.
