Earlier today we released the first implementation of the InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog Trial! This is a downloadable module that lets you quickly and easily get a closer look at the Information Governance Catalog (IGC), complete with real pre-loaded metadata, business terms, and lineage. It is a modified Docker-based implementation, and is not intended for production use or full-blown Information Server capability, but it allows you and your team to explore IGC, work with its features, and realize how you can achieve your governance objectives for common understanding, data quality monitoring, and data lineage. Tutorials and videos will also guide you along the way. The links below go into far more detail and lead also to the formal download page… Good luck and enjoy!

Hi – I’ve looked for the IGC Trial everywhere and don’t see it anymore. Is it still available for download?

Did some digging, and unfortunately, the IGC Trial has been discontinued. Mostly due to the fact that it is on 11.5 and production is now at 11.7. …and 11.7 adds some additional architectural pieces that make it difficult to distribute in a similar manner.
