In the era of data lakes and digital transformation, Data catalogs are taking on new functionality and revitalized importance. You’d be hard put to manage your data landscape responsibly without a data catalog, but just because catalogs are needed doesn’t mean they are just a dry requirement. Done right, data catalogs can make self-service analytics across the Enterprise far more productive, widely-adopted and — dare we say it — fun.
Data catalogs can facilitate frictionless discoverability, fostering the user enthusiasm needed for a robust data culture. They help users find the data they want and discover data they may not have known was available. Machine learning/AI-driven recommendations help users too, especially when they’re security-aware and based on what other users have found useful.
People are an essential part of successful data catalog implementations, and social collaboration features help spread analytics enthusiasm. Peer endorsement of data sets, user-contributed documentation and peer-to-peer communication are all important; and motivate users toward successful adoption.
