In our last blog post, we shared a proven approach to architecting a metadata search solution. Today, we’ll share a few high-level details about a solution that Perficient built, which can allow all types of financial services companies to jump-start their data democratization programs.
Perficient has developed a highly capable abstraction layer called Handshake, which connects a firm’s data governance metadata repositories with a broad range of enterprise search tools.

With Handshake, metadata and documents are quickly and efficiently indexed through connectors that extract information from a firm’s data governance source systems. Handshake manages the scheduling for source traversals and transforms the information into an optimized, search-compliant format, allowing the information to be efficiently ingested into the enterprise search engine or platform. Handshake has existing connectors for many enterprise search applications, and where needed, new connectors can be constructed in short order.
In our next post, we will wrap up this series with a few final words.
