Data Cataloging

What is data cataloging?

To assist data experts and business users in locating pertinent data for analytics purposes, a data catalog is a piece of software that compiles an inventory of an organization's data assets. By including governance policies and controls, data quality guidelines, a business glossary with common words, and other details intended to guarantee that data is utilized appropriately, it also helps with data governance. Metadata, or the descriptive information about data needed to build the data inventory, is what powers data catalogs. In order to understand the data that is available in IT systems and assess if it meets their needs, catalog users can use the contextual information about data assets that are provided by the underlying metadata. As businesses increasingly rely on data analytics to inform their business strategy and operations, the use of data catalogs is expanding.
