Data Catalog

The Data Catalog application in Collibra is a catalog of metadata that helps the business and data stewards discover, describe, assemble and govern data sets, to improve trust in analytics based on those data sets.

In Data Catalog, you can integrate data from multiple data sources: databases, data lakes, warehouses, enterprise applications, ETL tools, and BI solutions. Metadata provides information such as the format of the data, the structure of the data, and when assets were created.
Data Catalog also allows you to enrich the integrated metadata by adding profiling information, defining the data class, and linking the data to the business context.

The overarching aim of Data Catalog is to create and maintain an inventory of an organization’s data assets across its entire digital landscape, so that data assets are easier to find and trust to drive insightful business decisions by data consumers.
