Data, reports, analytics everywhere—and no way to find them!

I hear this from many organizations suffering from an “embarrassing” wealth of analytics products. Unfortunately, because these products are all over the place and often hidden from business users and analytics implementers, the products get re-invented over and over. This dysfunctional situation causes wasted effort, time, money, and confusion—to say nothing of the redundancy in data and analytics.

Although certainly not a silver bullet, a sophisticated data catalog can mitigate this chaos. Business community members can quickly find the data and analytics they need. Implementers can identify existing products as quickly and eliminate much of the redundancy. Both groups can easily identify existing redundant data and analytics and begin to clean up their environments.
