Frequently Asked Questions

Can I configure my registry to include single-sign on or secure hosting?

We include Aristotle Standard Cloud hosting on all Aristotle Metadata Registry licencing plans. Aristotle Standard Cloud uses secure, application isolation to provide a safe and cost-effective software-as-a-service platform for metadata management.

Where clients have more strict organisational information security requirements, such as enterprise single-sign on, we provide the Aristotle Secure Cloud and Aristotle Protected Cloud. These products include additional layers of network and infrastructure isolation to provide further guarantees of client data protection.

What is the Aristotle Metadata Roadmap?

Each year, in collaboration with our clients we coordinate the development of the Aristotle Metadata Roadmap that lays out features and improvements users can expect to the platform each year. This process helps to gather and prioritise feedback, and ensures that the Aristotle Metadata Registry remains a leading, user-friendly metadata registry.

All users have the ability to provide feedback through our community, or through their registry administrators. Once feedback has been gathered, we develop and circulate draft roadmaps to our clients, and invite clients to nominate representatives to participate and endorse our annual product roadmap.

Once I hit the limit of teams or users for my plan, can I get more?

Yes — Each plan includes a number of user licences, and to limit disruption we won't prevent your users from signing up. If we detect that you are getting close to exceeding your included licences, we will contact you to dicuss ways to help manage your registry. Options can include up-front purchasing of additional user licences, monthly invoicing or adding a hard limit.

Only active users or teams count against your limits so you can always deactivate users who no longer use the system, or archive teams to increase capacity.

What is a Stewardship Organisation?

A Stewardship Organisation is a group responsible for the creation and governance of data and metadata. It could be a whole company, a business unit, committee or a data council. Each Stewardship Organisation can define its own governance roles and teams to delegate responsibility and help with the development of metadata.

In the Aristotle Metadata Registry, Stewardship Organisations allow a single registry to be shared by multiple business units or connected organisations. Each Organisation can control their own governance in a private space isolated from other areas.

This allows a single Aristotle Metadata Registry to capture multiple separate business silos within a single registry, or even build multi-tenancy metadata solutions that can be shared among related organisations.

Are there setup costs?

No — your subscription to the Aristotle Metadata Registry includes scalable, stable & secure hosting in your Standard hosting environments. If you have additional security requirements, we do offer enhanced Aristotle Secure Cloud and Aristotle Protected Cloud options. Once you choose your configuration we can have your Aristotle Metadata Registry ready to go almost instantly.

If you have large volumes of metadata to migrate or have special design requirements, we can discuss consulting options to provide you with the services you need.
