Data catalogs

Companies thriving for more data-driven business often struggle with similar challenges: What data do we have? Who uses the data and for what? Where is the data we need? Data catalogs can be the solution.

Data catalog is a core component of modern data management

Data catalogs are combining the power of Google-like search, a Wikipedia-like structure and automated self-learning for how data should be structured to generate the most value for the organisation.

Data catalogs have quickly become a core component of modern data management. A data catalog is a collection of metadata, combined with data management and search tools, that helps analysts and other data users to find the data that they need. It is a strutcured inventory of all data assets in your organisation, helping you to get more value of your data assets.

  • Higher productivity
  • Better business decisions
  • More efficient collaboration and community
  • Higher value and lower cost of data
  • Legal and compliance
  • Transparency and increased trust in data
