Enterprise Data Catalog

What Is An Enterprise Data Catalog?

The Enterprise Data Catalog provides invaluable visibility and insight into business processes by allowing your Chief Data Officer, analysts, architects, and other data users to access, analyse and govern all your data in one place.

Incorporate any source of data

The Enterprise Data Catalog pulls data from a variety of sources, including structured data such as relational and document databases and unstructured data such as social media content, documents, images, and email.

Identify and classify your data

The Enterprise Data Catalog identifies, maps, and groups data assets from different sources into topics. Thus, metadata becomes available in one central place, providing data professionals a full view and easy access to every topic.

Collaborate and make better decisions

The Enterprise Data Catalog allows the relevant people in your organisation to find, access, and analyse the data they need in order to perform their job and make informed decisions.

Find, understand, and govern data

The Enterprise Data Catalog is the inventory of all the data assets within an organisation. It describes where data is stored, how to locate data sources, who can access these, and who is responsible for the data. From original data sources to data that has been transformed and is ready for consumption by business users, the enterprise data catalog spans the whole data lifecycle.

Create a data-driven culture

The Enterprise Data Catalog facilitates complete data visibility across the entire organisation by allowing personnel to easily find, access, analyse, and make decisions based on actual data. The ease of use and easy access bring about a cultural change in which data becomes the primary means that drives the organisation’s decision-making process.

Govern data effortlessly

Policies and regulations are incorporated into the Enterprise Data Catalog so that data access and ownership is automatically granted or denied based on users’ clearance level, allowing data compliance officers to govern data seamlessly and risk-free.
