What is a Data Catalog?

A data catalog forms a core component of modern data management. Data catalogs serve as the gateway to a common nexus of information within organizations, incorporating physical assets, record sets, glossaries, dictionaries, and other taxonomies. They provide a comprehensive repository for efficient organization, exploration, and utilization of data assets, playing a crucial role in effective data management practices.

Data catalog features

Solidatus enables the creation, management and socialization of:

  • Business glossaries
  • Technical data dictionaries
  • Asset inventories
  • Policies and standards
  • Other taxonomies

Seamlessly linking each of these reference documents with data lineage models through data cataloging tools creates a comprehensive end-to-end map of all held data, its interaction with policy, people, and process.

The organizational impacts of utilizing data cataloging in conjunction with data lineage are significantly amplified compared to using them in isolation. While catalogs provide the “what is,” lineage offers the “where, who, and why” – the context that adds meaning to metadata.

Reduce cost

Leveraging catalog data for collaborative knowledge-sharing, organizations break down silos to gain deeper insights into their data ecosystem. This fosters cross-selling opportunities, identifies redundancies, streamlines processes, and reduces costs effectively.

Mitigate risk

Systematic identification of poor-quality data reduces business risk by highlighting potential issues. Cataloged and visualized data allows organizations to future-proof by preventing crises, rather than managing them.
