In version 11.x (and there is no version 10.x) Metadata Workbench and Business Glossary are combined into a single product called Information Governance Catalog.

I don't see much Metadata Workbench any more and to be honest it was a difficult product to get to know with lots of configuration steps to get lineage working. The Information Governance Catalog that replaced it got lineage right in release 11.3 onwards - it shows data lineage across DataStage jobs even if the DataStage developer has taken short cuts in the way they have imported or created table definitions.

I have seen a few organisations use IGC for the Business Glossary. I have seen some set up extensive data lineage including lineage for over 1,000 data flows. I haven't seen too many organisations fully understand how to use IGC as an effective data dictionary and how to use lineage properly for impact analysis. I think IGC 11.7 with the new IGC data catalog interface and IA thin client makes the suite a more effective metadata reporting tool.
