Webinar Abstract

Today, there are many opportunities to use data in new and exciting ways to drive business decisions. They range from better treatment plans for patients to improved logistics to better targeting display ads to potential customers. Organizations are looking to make better decisions using analytics. In fact, TDWI routinely sees that the principal driver for any data technology, be it data warehouse modernization or predictive analytics, is better decision making. 

As companies increase their usage of both internal and external data for decision making, they need to be able to integrate and organize that data in a way that makes it accessible to more users performing analysis to drive business value. A data catalog—a searchable data directory or inventory that describes the data—is an important piece of this. Organizations can use the catalog to search for data sets that are relevant to their analysis rather than having to check multiple siloed disparate data sets. Today’s advanced catalogs, which often incorporate artificial intelligence technologies, can provide business users with natural language interfaces to help them search across multiple sources, in the same way that consumers search the Internet using popular search engines.

Register for this webinar to learn more about how modern data catalogs can help business make better decisions. You will learn about:

  • How data catalogs can help businesses—deconstructing the business analysis process
  • Trends in catalogs—how AI can make catalogs more business-friendly
  • Business use cases where data catalogs have had an important impact
