Using business glossaries

A business glossary is a tool that helps you view standardized terms and definitions within your Qlik Cloud platform. A shared understanding of terminology is essential for data discovery and collaboration across departments. Business glossaries are a resource type in Qlik Cloud. They consist of logical categories populated with terms described in clear language that everyone across an organization can refer to and understand.

As an analyst, a business glossary:

  • Helps you find and understand answers to business questions.
  • Provides standardized definitions for business terms.
  • Instills confidence in linked datasets and apps by providing context and background.
  • Facilitates deeper communication and collaboration across lines of business.

You might have access to glossaries in the spaces to which you have access. Organizations may have multiple glossaries for various functional areas that support targeted lines of business. Qlik Cloud
