“Being able to refer to written definitions of our data elements has made it so much easier to create accurate, up-to-date reports that our users actually trust.”
Molly Vander Velde
Organize your glossary
the way you want
A Term is the fundamental unit of your glossary. It can be a KPI definition, metric formula, or business taxonomy — it’s up to you. The special part? Group collections of Terms into Categories, and create multi-level hierarchies that mimic the way you work.
The connected semantic layer
for your business
In Atlan, the glossary is more than just a dictionary. It’s an activated knowledge network for your business, where you can create relationships between definitions, metrics, and assets.
Rich documentation for rich context
360° context for every term, category, and glossary
Everyone suggests, you approve
Get rid of tribal knowledge with Requests. Anyone with view access to data can suggest owners, missing terms, or a change to the description. It’s in your hands to approve.
“We want to surface everything in the enterprise to the users, but restrict some data in terms of access. I have to go through a request process, but we don’t want to stop them from seeing what exists.”

Pick up where you left off
“Atlan wasn’t built as just a catalog management tool. It’s really a home for data people to collaborate, discuss things, and come together.”
