Data Catalog

All Glossary Terms

A data catalog is a comprehensive collection of an organization’s data assets, which are compiled to make it easier for professionals across the organization to locate the data they need. Just as book catalogs help users quickly locate books in libraries, data catalogs help users quickly search or browse an organization’s data assets by providing descriptions in the form of metadata (data that describes or summarizes other data). Robust data catalogs allow users to spend less time finding appropriate data and more time utilizing it.
