Octopai, a leader in metadata management automation, has introduced a new automated data catalog designed for the hybrid world. The catalog is fully integrated with a complete multidimensional data lineage platform. Octopai’s new data catalog self-creates and self-updates to create consistency for business and technical teams and is easy to implement and maintain in a sometimes remote, always complex, multilayered BI environment.
Data usage is growing at an extremely fast pace, so much so that business and IT teams are struggling to keep up with and effectively manage their data. Enabling data users to become self-sufficient and independent in their data usage is key to the success of business growth strategies that rely on data for decision making and product offerings.
The hybrid work environment creates an even greater strain on teams that are operating remotely yet collaboratively, especially for data-driven organizations that have a mix of on-premises and cloud-based BI solutions. Most data catalogs are difficult to implement in such an environment and are not user friendly or suitable for the diverse data users such as business or IT, which can add to the difficulty of remote teams.
Taking the lead in tackling these issues, Octopai’s new automated data catalog has an easy implementation process, provides full coverage of BI platforms that are either on-premises or cloud-based, and democratizes data with built-in collaboration. Additionally, Octopai’s data catalog preserves organizational tribal knowledge, provides an intuitive user experience with no need for training, is suited for the diverse data users from business to IT, and integrates end-to-end data lineage into the catalog for full data traceability.
A data catalog integrated with multilayered data lineage is imperative for data architects as well as analytics and BI professionals. Without this, there is disparity across the data lineage platform. The launch of the automated data catalog comes on the heels of the introduction to Data Lineage XD -- an advanced, multidimensional data lineage platform. Octopai has rolled out the Automated Data Catalog to support the XD approach and create automation, efficiency, and collaboration within corporations. The new automated catalog reduces mistakes and false assumptions by unifying the terms used within a company and provides a reference guide and vocabulary terms with predetermined definitions.
With the new automated data catalog, organizations can simplify the complex data landscape, increase knowledge about the available data, and build trust among business users. This, in turn, leads to more effective data usage, which is essential to accomplish data-driven initiatives.
Octopai provides visibility of the entire BI environment and provides a full, multidimensional view of data lineage so companies can efficiently gain access to all the data movement within the company. Octopai automates the data discovery process, enabling users to locate data in moments to make more accurate and faster business decisions so companies can thrive and grow in the fast-paced setting of today’s business world.
