With the rapid expansion of data across multiple clouds, it is challenging for companies to manually track all the data systems and data that exists within their organization. This interesting topic came to us from Security Boulevard in their article, “Improve Data Understanding, Accessibility, & Control With an Automated Data Catalog.”

Business and technical users need the ability to easily explore data, for analytics driving business insight. Privacy, security, and governance require the quality and consistency of data to be maintained at a high level. Companies need a centralized metadata repository that minds the data, its sources, its locations, its type, its meaning, its intended use, and its security/sensitivity rating.

An automated data catalog is a tool or system that organizes, manages, and provides metadata and aggregated information about an organization’s data assets.

Automated data catalogs make it easier for users to find the data they need. They provide a centralized and searchable repository of data assets, including information about their sources, formats, schemas, and relationships.

At the end of the day, content needs to be findable, and that happens with a strong, standards-based taxonomyData Harmony is our patented, award winning, artificial intelligence (AI) suite that leverages explainable AI for efficient, innovative, and precise semantic discovery of your new and emerging concepts, to help you find the information you need when you need it.
