How a Data Catalog Can Empower Your Organization with Trusted Data
Imagine you visit a library to find a specific book. You could start browsing the aisles until you eventually find what you’re looking for, or you could use an online catalog to find where the book is located quickly, see what edition is on the shelf, and read a brief synopsis so you can be sure it contains the information you need.
If you think of all of the data in your organization as books in an expansive digital library, having an organized inventory of assets is essential to finding and using it. Otherwise, without a way to locate the correct data and know its value, you’re left with a mountain (or a lake) of meaningless information.
The solution? You need a data catalog. In this eBook you will learn:
- What is a Data Catalog?
- Foundations of a Data Catalog
- Components of a Modern Data Catalog
- Understanding Data Governance
- And more
