Overall Satisfaction with Azure Data Catalog

Our organisation is in the midst of digital transformation. There were data silos which were trying to connect together. Azure data catalogue was helpful in metadata management for data sources. It's our one-stop solution for data discovery. Earlier it was difficult for the business to investigate various data sources we have and the business was more reliant on IT and tech functions for any data discovery-related challenges. With Azure Data Catalogue, business is not only discovering data quickly but also has the proper context they need about the information. This has ultimately resulted in enhanced decision-making and overall efficiencies.

Well suited if your teams are spending more time on looking for data than analysing and finding insights. Azure data catalogue enables quick discovery of data and works with most of the existing systems and tools you have in place. People across the business can get more understanding and context of any data asset in the organisation. Possibilities to shine a light on dark data stuck in silos.
