Octopai has introduced the first cloud-based metadata search engine tool to provide business intelligence (BI) groups with full visibility and control of metadata scattered across many different BI systems within an organization.
By centralizing and automating metadata, Octopai enables BI groups to quickly and accurately discover and govern shared metadata. By taking the guesswork out of metadata management, Octopai reduces costs, increases productivity, and minimizes risks incurred by inaccurate data while turning weeks of manual work into minutes.
BI groups commonly manage metadata by using proprietary, silo-based tools that support only a single BI system (ETL tools, databases, or reporting tools) and have a narrow view of the data journey. This makes it extremely challenging to search for and locate required metadata. Octopai’s technology retrieves the metadata directly from these BI systems and places it on a centralized cloud platform, giving BI groups the ability to make changes quickly, find metadata, build new business processes, or fix faulty reports in a fraction of the time that it would take to manually complete this task.
Octopai estimates the impact on businesses implementing its technology is significant. By eliminating associated maintenance costs and digitizing manual work, BI groups are able to work more accurately and can reduce overall costs as they increase their capacity by almost 80 percent.
