Integrating with Information Governance Catalog
If you have existing assets in IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog, you can easily use them in Watson Knowledge Catalog as well to analyze the data with the data science, machine learning, and other artificial intelligence capabilities of Watson Studio. You can import assets from Information Governance Catalog into a Watson Knowledge Catalog catalog or you can configure automatic synchronization of data assets between Information Governance Catalog and a Watson Knowledge Catalog catalog.
You must have the Watson Knowledge Catalog Professional plan to import or synchronize Information Governance Catalog assets.
You must have administrators roles for both InfoSphere Information Server and Watson Knowledge Catalog.
Types of assets
You can import and synchronize these types of Information Governance Catalog assets:
- Connections to relational databases
- Relational databases
- Tables and columns
Database assets are combined with connection assets in a catalog. Each combination of Information Governance Catalog database asset and its associated connection asset becomes a connection asset in the catalog.
Schema assets are combined with table assets in a catalog. Each Information Governance Catalog table asset and its associated schema asset becomes a data asset in the catalog.
Other types of assets, for example, business glossary terms, files, or folders, are skipped and not imported into Watson Knowledge Catalog catalogs or synchronized between Information Governance Catalog and Watson Knowledge Catalog catalogs.
