What is a data catalog software?

Data Catalog is an inventory of all data assets in an organization. It uses metadata to help data users discover, understand and manage their data. Data catalog software is an important part of every data management strategy. It allows companies to build their own data catalogs to create a data culture, support data discovery and data governance.

Why having a data catalog is important?

Data is crucial to making informed business decisions. Without a data catalog many companies struggle with finding, understanding, and trusting their data. This usually leads to slowed down analyses, errors in reports, and making poor decisions. Data catalog provides a single, easily accessible place to store all the knowledge about data. This allows data analysts, data scientists, and business users to focus on getting insights & value from data, instead of searching for it and trying to understand it.

How does a data catalog work?

Dataedo Data Catalog is a web interface for day-to-day work for data users. It has all the capabilities needed to find and understand data, such as data dictionary, business glossary, ER diagrams, advanced faceted search and more. It is powered by a metadata repository - a database that stores all the metadata collected & managed by Dataedo. Most data in the repo is coming from Dataedo Dekstop - main interface for data stewards to catalog & document data, but Dataedo Web Catalog also has editing capabilities. Learn more about Dataedo architecture.

How do I start a data catalog?

To start a data catalog you need to install Dataedo Desktop, connect to your data sources and scan metadata, and then install Dataedo Web Catalog. This can be done within a day to produce an MVP. In case you need help at any point, our Onboarding Manager will be there to guide you and provide support.
