Fusion Registry Knowledge Base

Fusion Registry is now brought to you by Regnology, a global leader in Financial and Tax Regulatory Reporting Solutions for Regulators and Regulated firms. Regnology acquired Metadata Technology Ltd in May 2023. You can read more here: Press Release.

The acquisition does not affect the functionality of Fusion Registry, although further brand changes will follow in the coming months.

SDMX Statistical Data Warehouse

Fusion Registry is for central banks, international organisations, national statistics offices, development banks and regional statistics authorities who need an enterprise SDMX statistical data warehouse for storage of aggregated time series, data cataloguing and public dissemination.

Fusion Registry Components and Modules

It consists of a number of modules centered on the Fusion Registry core data engine, including a secure high-performance data dissemination server and a configurable data explorer and analytics tool for data consumers and analysts.

Fusion Registry has an integrated SDMX structural metadata registry that is 100% compatible with Fusion Metadata Registry.


Fusion Registry

SDMX statistical data engine and structural metadata registry.
The main statistical engine for data collection, integration, processing, storage, query execution and time-series calculations. It provides an SDMX-compliant data and metadata REST API.
The integrated SDMX structural metadata registry acts as the central repository, authoring and maintenance tool for all of the structures including Codelists, Concepts and Data Structure Definitions.

Fusion Edge Server

High-performance data dissemination server.
A light-weight SDMX data and metadata REST API server designed to be deployed in clusters in the DMZ or at the network edge for scalable, fault-tolerant public data dissemination use cases.

Fusion Data Browser

Web tool for data consumers to explore the Fusion Registry data catalogue, create charts and tables, and download data.
Fusion Data Browser is a web application suitable for both internal and external data consumers to search and explore the catalogue of datasets, select series and cubes of interest, build visualisations using tables and charts, and retrieve selected data in a variety of formats including SDMX, Excel and CSV.
It can connect to either a Fusion Registry Core engine, or a Fusion Edge Server cluster.


Microsoft Excel addin for Fusion Registry.
FusionXL is an Excel addin for browsing and modifying structural metadata, exploring the data catalogue, and downloading data directly into a spreadsheet.

Fusion FAME Mapper

Web tool for creating and maintaining Fusion Registry FAME to SDMX series mappings.
Web tool for Fusion Registry Core for mapping series with a single dimension to richer multi-dimensional structures using SDMX structure mapping rules.
The main use case is mapping FAME series which typically have a single 'series code' dimension to SDMX multi-dimensional structures including dimensions and attributes like: FREQ, INDICATOR, REF_AREA and UNIT_MULT. However, it will work with source data with a single dimension like 'Indicator'.


Fusion Registry Command Line

Windows and Linux command line interface.
A command line interface to Fusion Registry's REST API providing utility scripts for loading structures, data and metadata, validating data, exporting content and deleting content.

Fusion FAME Mapper

Fusion Data Mapper provides a web user Interface to administer Structure Maps in the Fusion Registry, where the maps support a specific use case – mapping from Single Dimension Data Structures to multidimensional Data Structures. This use case is borne out of statistical applications which model time series datasets as a single unique identifier for the Series alongside a Time Dimension. By modelling these dataset as a DSD with one Dimension (and a Time Dimension), it is very easy to overlay SDMX metadata to describe the Time Series as a multidimensional Cube with additional series Attributes to carry richer metadata.

Fusion Edge Server

Fusion Edge Server is a solution for supporting high performance data and metadata dissemination, with high throughput. The Fusion Edge Server serves all data, related metadata, including reference metadata, from its highly optimised in memory store and as such has no reliance on a database. The Fusion Edge Server has been designed to support the use case of high availability of data through load balancing.

Fusion Edge Server provides access to its stored data and metadata through SDMX compliant web services, and includes support for non-SDMX data formats such as CSV and Excel. The Fusion Edge Server extends the SDMX web services by providing additional information such as data metrics, and data search.

Fusion Edge Server is compatible with Fusion Data Browser and Fusion XL, providing an off-the-shelf solution for both web based data exploration, and from within Microsoft Excel. Connectivity to statistical software such as R and Matlab can be achieved using third party SDMX Connector libraries such as the SDMX Connectors project.
