Data analysts typically spend about 80% of their time searching, profiling, and understanding data needed for their analysis. With the power of an enterprise data catalog in place, we can significantly increase the efficiency of your data users. In this video, Kalman Roemer, a Consultant on Infoverity’s Data Governance and Analytics team, talks about why an enterprise data catalog is important to your business:
An enterprise data catalog is a centralized collection of an organization’s metadata – one that enables everyday business users to discover and consume data efficiently, comply with data privacy regulations, understand data location usage and importance, and gain insight into data quality.
Finding data efficiently is just one reason to implement a data catalog within your business. Understanding where your data is, who is using it, and for what purpose, is essential to ensuring that your organization is complying with data privacy regulations, such as GDPR.
Data catalogs leverage artificial intelligence to automatically classify and profile your information giving your organization insight into data quality which can accelerate your data governance initiatives and help ensure enterprise-wide compliance.
Understanding the benefits to having a data catalog is the first step in a company’s journey to becoming a data-centric organization and Infoverity has the accelerators in place to ensure that your implementation is a success.
